Service disruption

Last updated: Sunday, 8 May 2022

We are currently experiencing a driver shortage, which means some services will be cancelled.

An emergency timetable is also in place following a low-speed derailment at Coatbridge Sunnyside, which has resulted in the closure of the line in that area.

We are reliant on drivers working overtime – known as rest day working – because of delays to training new drivers caused by the pandemic.

Unfortunately, since the drivers’ union ASLEF announced its intention to recommend a ballot for strike action after receiving an offer of a 2.2 per cent pay increase, a significant number of drivers, but not all, have declined to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working.

The offer of a 2.2 per cent pay increase for 22/23 comes after three increases in pay between 2019 and 2020.
