Trains very busy at cup fi­nal

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff reporter

Train ser­vices on the New­ton line through Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are ex­pected to be ex­tremely busy this Satur­day when the Scot­tish Cup Fi­nal takes place.

Celtic face Aberdeen in the show­piece game at Ham­p­den and ScotRail are ad­vis­ing peo­ple to plan ahead if mak­ing a jour­ney.

Roads in Ruther­glen, King’s Park and To­ry­glen will also be ex­tremely busy as 50,000 fans de­scend on the na­tional sta­dium.

Ex­tra trains and ad­di­tional car­riages will be made avail­able on the day.

The New­ton line calls at Mount Florida and King’s Park, which both serve Ham­p­den. Jour­neys to Croft­foot, Burn­side, Kirkhill and New­ton will also be af­fected.

To al­low for ad­di­tional ser­vices to run to and from the game, many trains us­ing the high level sta­tions will de­part from a dif­fer­ent plat­form than usual, and may also ar­rive or de­part at slightly dif­fer­ent times.

A ScotRail Al­liance spokesper­son said:“Don’t score an own goal, leave plenty of time to get to the game.

“Ex­tra staff will be around to help – please fol­low their in­struc­tions to en­sure that ev­ery­thing goes smoothly.”

“The last trains of the night are go­ing to be very busy, too – so please plan to catch an ear­lier one.”
