Changes to services to/from Glasgow and Lanarkshire

Over the next few weeks, major improvement works will be taking place on routes across the Central Belt as we work to build the best railway Scotland's ever had.

The vast majority of these works will take place at weekends, although some will take place on weekdays, and we will be doing all we can to keep you moving.

Trains may be replaced by buses for some or all of the journey, and some services may be diverted or take longer than normal.

We recommend that you plan your journey in advance, and leave plenty of extra time for travel.
