Scotrail is going to cancel services from 4pm on Wednesday

The trains across Scotland will be cancelled from today afternoon and evening as the country braces for the impact of Storm Dudley.  At the start of the week, The UK Met Office issued a weather warning for large parts of Scotland due to expected strong winds – and later updated that warning to amber “be prepared” status.

And in response to that, ScotRail said that all the domestic rail services will cease from 4pm on Wednesday. It is about to be noted that the storm and powerful wind Storm Dudley fear is the strength of the winds could “damage infrastructure” and cause debris and trees to blow onto the tracks, as well as cause a risk to overhead power lines and signals.

Liam Sumpter, Network Rail route director for Scotland, said that the storm Dudley has the potential to cause significant disruption to our infrastructure blowing trees onto tracks and damaging equipment. They will be working hard on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning to respond to any issues caused by Storm Dudley and will reintroduce services as soon as lines are inspected for damage and we are sure it is safe to do so.

The passengers due to travel on Wednesday are being advised to check the ScotRail app or website before heading to their train station. Storm Eunice is also due to hit large parts of Scotland on Friday and ScotRail say they are “monitoring the conditions” before making a decision on services that day.
