Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Douglas Dickie

Rail pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling home from Glas­gow to some sta­tions in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing warned trains could be ex­tremely busy this week­end.

Both Scot­tish Cup semi-fi­nals will take place at Ham­p­den on Satur­day, April 22 and Sun­day, April 23.

On the Satur­day, Aberdeen face Hiber­nian which kicks off at 12.15pm, while the Old Firm will face off at noon on the Sun­day.

Longer trains and ex­tra ser­vices will be pro­vided for cus­tomers on the New­ton line, which in­cludes King’s Park, Croft­foot, Burn­side, Kirkhill and New­ton, on both days.

A ScotRail Al­liance spokesman said:“It’s go­ing to be a big few days, with lots of fans head­ing to the west for a great week­end of sport. We can’t make ev­ery train longer but we will def­i­nitely be us­ing ev­ery train we can.

“Cus­tomers are ad­vised to get to the sta­tion early and al­low ex­tra time for travel. Queu­ing sys­tems will be in place at busy lo­ca­tions, so please buy your ticket in ad­vance and fol­low the in­struc­tions of staff. The last trains of the night will be very busy, so please aim for an ear­lier ser­vice to avoid dis­ap­point­ment.”

An al­co­hol ban will be in place both days while a queu­ing sys­tem for pas­sen­gers will be in place at Glas­gow Cen­tral on the Sun­day.
