Glasgow-Kilwinning rail line closed on Sundays for 4 weeks

0

The railway line between Glasgow and Kilwinning will be closed on Sunday until February 20 as Network Rail replaces worn-out tracks in a £4million investment.

Over a mile of track will be renewed at various locations including Howwood, Glengarnock and Dalgarven.

The works are necessary to ensure the continued, safe and smooth operation of the railway.

Crews will replace the old, worn railway track by removing it and laying new stone ballast, sleepers and rails. Due to the complexity of the works, they cannot be delivered without some short-term line closures.

During the closures, the following services will be affected:

From Glasgow Central to Ardrossan Harbor

  • A train service will operate between Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street, and between Kilwinning and Ardrossan Harbour.
  • Replacement bus services will operate between Paisley Gilmour Street and Kilwinning.
  • A direct bus will also operate between Glasgow Central and Ardrossan Port to connect with ferry crossings.

Glasgow Central to Ayr

  • A train service will operate between Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street and between Kilwinning and Ayr.
  • Replacement bus services will operate between Paisley Gilmour Street and Kilwinning.

Glasgow Central to Largs

  • Rail services will operate between Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street, and between Kilwinning and Largs
  • Replacement bus services will operate between Paisley Gilmour Street and Kilwinning.

Liam Sumpter, Network Rail’s Route Director for Scotland, said: “The work we are undertaking is vital to the long-term future reliability of the line.

“Our engineers will be working around the clock to complete these complex projects as quickly as possible.

“We understand the inconvenience that this work will cause to some passengers and local residents and we thank them for their patience. We are committed to completing this work quickly and keeping disruption to a minimum. »
