RAIL journeys through Clydebank could be disrupted over the next four Sundays as routine repair work is carried out.

There will be a revised service for routes from Balloch and Helensburgh and Glasgow Queen Street. Buses will operate between Anniesland and Newton/Bargeddie. Services to Larkhall and Hamilton Central will see replacement buses as well.

ScotRail Alliance said there would be no train service at Jordanhill, Exhibition Centre, Anderston, Glasgow Central Low Level, Argyle Street, Bridgeton, Dalmarnock, Rutherglen, Chatelherault, Merryton and Larkhall.

Slab track replacement work is being carried out between Dalmarnock and Finnieston on August 13, 20 and 27 and September 3.

Rob Shorthouse, ScotRail Alliance communications director, said: “We are working hard to build the best railway that Scotland has ever had. We know that having your regular journey changed can be a pain, but all this work really is going to be worth it.

“We are carrying out the biggest upgrade to the network since it was built in Victorian times – and it will mean more seats, faster, more reliable journeys and more and better services.”

Meanwhile, delays are expected as the Erskine Bridge undergoes eight weekends of work to paint its supporting cables.

Scotland TranServ said a routine inspection and painting would be carried out starting on August 12 as part of a £210,000 project to protect the long-term integrity of the cables.

The works will run from 8am to 6pm each Saturday and Sunday until October 8, except for the weekend of September 30 and October 1 when other works are being carried out on the A82.

TranServ said in a statement: “In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible it will be necessary to implement temporary traffic management over the weekends of work only.

“The health and safety of our workers and of the travelling public is paramount to Scotland TranServ and therefore we will need to close the fast lane on each side of the bridge. “

“Our traffic monitoring contractor is forecasting delays in the area to be around 15 minutes as a result.”
