Timetable changes.

We’re progressing plans to build the best railway Scotland has ever had.

Work is well underway to deliver the next phase of electrification of central Scotland's railway, on routes linking Edinburgh and Glasgow via Shotts, as well as to Stirling, Dunblane and Alloa. We are working to deliver the Scottish Government's strategic investment to electrify the railway in central Scotland, allowing us to introduce more seats and better services.

In the north of the country, works are ongoing to improve the Aberdeen to Inverness line in order to provide a more frequent and reliable service. As part of this, the track will be redoubled, bridge works will be carried out and the signalling system will be upgraded between Aberdeen and Dyce.

To make this happen, some timetables need to be changed.
