Signal problems resolved after major disruption to Glasgow services

Trains in Glasgow's Queen Street station

Signalling faults causing major rail disruption for commuters in and out of Glasgow have been resolved.

The malfunctions at Greenhill and Newton are now repaired and the line at Newton has now been fully reopened.

But ScotRail warned passengers to expect several hours of continued disruption due to trains and crews being out of position.

A full service is now running on the main Glasgow to Edinburgh route via Falkirk High.

The Glasgow Central to Lanark service was also running as normal.

Earlier, during the morning peak time, a separate signalling problem led to some services out of Queen Street being suspended.

A burst water main near Kirkhill Station also caused cancellations between Glasgow Central and Newton via Kings Park.

Several services were subject to continued disruption on Tuesday evening:

  • Dumbarton - Cumbernauld
  • Dalmuir to Larkhall
  • Dalmuir to Motherwell via Whifflet
  • Milngavie to Motherwell/Cumbernauld via Blantyre
  • Glasgow Central to Edinburgh via Shotts
  • Glasgow Central to Newton via Kings Park - terminating/starting at Burnside (due to burst water main)

A ScotRail spokesman said: "Due to two separate signal faults, a number of our services will be subject to disruption. We know how frustrating this is for our customers, and are doing everything we can to get things back to normal.

"We are encouraging customers to download our app, or check @ScotRail on Twitter, for the most up to date information. Customers travelling between Edinburgh and Glasgow should consider travelling on the Queen Street low level line via Airdrie.

"Customers delayed by 30 minutes or more are entitled to compensation under our Delay Repay scheme. Customers can claim this by keeping hold of their tickets and visiting our website."
