Maryhill line recovery works

Published on : Wednesday, April 5, 2017

lambhill-landslipTonnes of stone and mud has been washed onto the track near Lambhill in the north of the city. The foundations of a footbridge over the railway have also been significantly weakened following the landslip on Tuesday morning.

 

Engineers are currently working to stabilise the slope and assess the damage to the footbridge, which may need to be temporarily removed and then reconstructed before the line can be safely reopened.

 

As a result, ScotRail is making the following services alterations:

services between Glasgow Queen Street – Anniesland have been cancelled. A full bus replacement service will be in place for the half hourly service although customers are reminded that calls to intermediate stations will take longer.
services between Glasgow Queen Street – Crianlarich have also been cancelled. A full bus replacement service will be in place to all intermediate stations.
services for the West Highland line will begin at Crianlarich and continue to all intermediate stations for Oban, Fort William and Mallaig.
A ScotRail Alliance spokesman said: “Our team has been on site since Tuesday morning assessing the damage and making plans to repair the line.

 

“We will be working around the clock to get the railway open as soon as possible, but extensive structural repairs will be needed to fix the significant damage caused to the footbridge.”

 

Customers affected by this issue can use ScotRail’s Delay Repay compensation scheme, which kicks in for services that are delayed for 30 minutes or longer.
