Trav­ellers face Easter week­end rail­way misery

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS of pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling to Glas­gow over the Easter week­end are set to be hit with de­lays, diver­sions and replacemen­t buses as part of im­prove­ment works.

Net­work Rail will be car­ry­ing out a £4mil­lion up­grade to a key junc­tion on the south side of the city.

As a re­sult, many rail ser­vices trav­el­ling to Glas­gow Cen­tral from England will be af­fected, with diver­sions via Motherwell and Ed­in­burgh pos­si­ble.

The up­grade is part of £18m-worth of im­prove­ments be­ing de­liv­ered across Scot­land’s rail­way this Easter by more than 1,500 en­gi­neers.

En­gi­neers will be­gin work at the end of ser­vice to­mor­row, with Glas­gow Cen­tral Low Level ser­vices op­er­at­ing to a re­vised timetable over the whole week­end.

A num­ber of other ScotRail routes are set to be hit as a re­sult.
