As Network Rail works to deliver more than £5m of enhancements for Scotland’s railway system, passengers are in for travel disruption over the Easter weekend and until the end of the month.

Work is set to begin from the evening of April 14 to 18 to replace and upgrade signalling systems and tracks on the West Coast main line.

At Motherwell, new modern signalling systems will be commissioned in the first phase of a two-year, £100m project to upgrade the signalling infrastructure in the area.

New tracks and points will be installed at Carstairs in South Lanarkshire and at Polmadie, in Glasgow, while engineers will also be working to refurbish and maintain bridges, level crossings, and tracks elsewhere across Scotland.

So, without further ado, Network Rail is reminding passengers to check their travel before leaving this Easter weekend - and beyond - and these are the service alterations in place for ScotRail services:

April 15 - Dunbartonshire: Glasgow, Cumbernauld, Falkirk Grahamston

Track and structure maintenance is taking place between Cumbernauld and Falkirk Grahamston, which will see buses replace trains between both stations.
