Newton train­will be­ex­tra busy

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Trains be­tween Newton and Glas­gow Cen­tral are ex­pected to be ex­tremely busy on Satur­day when Scot­land face Eng­land at Ham­p­den.

ScotRail is warn­ing pas­sen­gers that queu­ing sys­tems will be in place at Cen­tral for the Newton line, which also in­cludes the sta­tions at King’s Park, Croft­foot, Burn­side and Kirkhill.

Ex­tra car­riages and ser­vices will be pro­vided while Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice will have ex­tra of­fi­cers on duty.

Scot­land fans will be di­rected to Mount Florida sta­tion be­fore and after the game, while Eng­land sup­port­ers must use King’s Park.

An al­co­hol ban will be in place and of­fi­cers will be pa­trolling the net­work be­fore and after the game to re­as­sure the trav­el­ling public and to de­ter anti-so­cial and crim­i­nal be­hav­iour.

Jac­que­line Tag­gart, the ScotRail Al­liance’s cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence di­rec­tor, said: “We want ev­ery­one to have great time at the match, but more im­por­tantly, to stay safe. With this in mind, po­lice and ex­tra staff will be on hand to as­sist at key lo­ca­tions across our net­work. Please help them to help you by fol­low­ing their in­struc­tions.

“To help re­duce your need to queue, please buy your tick­ets through to Mount Florida or King’s Park in ad­vance – not on the day.”
