Changes to services via Glasgow Central low level and Newton

Friday, 27 July 2018

We will be making a number of changes to train services between Saturday, 14 July and Monday, 30 July.

Network Rail have informed us that they require an extra day to complete these works, on Monday, 30 July. These alterations will begin to show in our journey planner shortly.

This is to allow Network Rail to complete the next stage of the Polmadie and Rutherglen Resignalling programme to take place. Network Rail engineers will be working around the clock to remodel Rutherglen East Junction, allowing trains to cross over it at higher speed, as well as replacing and upgrading parts of the signalling system in the area.

During these works, many services will be diverted, or will be replaced by bus for some or all of the journey. Your journey may take longer than usual.

Please plan your journey in advance on our website, or check them on our free app.
