Rail travellers told to expect disruptions
Car Rental News - 29/12/2008
Passengers have been warned about disruptions as track improvement and signalling work begins.
Glasgow Central’s high level services have been cancelled until 30 December, and there will be some impact to services between Perth, Inverness and Aberdeen during the coming week.
On 3 and 4 January, there will be no service between Dundee and Aberdeen; and First ScotRail has said that on 2 and 3 January, services on the Largs line would be impacted by track improvement work Ardrossan and Kilwinning.
The operations and safety director of the rail firm, Steve Montgomery, said that bus services would run to replace the cancelled train services on all routes affected.
He noted: "We have done everything possible to keep inconvenience to an absolute minimum by running as many services as possible. Full plans are in place to provide alternative transport arrangements where required.”
Montgomery added: "Journeys will take longer than normal and passengers should allow more time from travel."
The cancellation of high level services at Glasgow Central is to permit the transfer of signalling operations to the new Cowlairs signalling centre.
Low level services at Glasgow Central will run at a reduced level from 27-29 December.
