LISTEN: Queen St Tunnel To Close for 20 Weeks
Rail passengers have been warned to expect longer journeys into Glasgow with the Queen Street tunnel to be closed for 20 weeks as part of a £60 million refurbishment programme.
Nearly 2km of track is to be replaced between March 20 and August 8 to enable faster and longer trains to use the tunnel.
The closure mean trains that would normally run in and out of Queen Street high level will be diverted to either Queen Street low level or Glasgow Central, leading to changes to existing timetables and longer journey times in some cases.
Additional carriages are to be added to services to provide extra capacity and queuing systems will be introduced at Glasgow Queen Street and Edinburgh Waverley at peak times, ScotRail said.
The group announced the closure to give people advance notice and information will be displayed at stations in the coming weeks.
Heart's Connor Gillies spoke to Phil Verster, managing director of the ScotRail Alliance:
The tunnel work is the latest stage in line improvements between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Transport minister Derek Mackay said: "This is a significant milestone in our £5 billion programme of investment in Scotland's railway which is helping to reverse decades of under-investment and substantially modernise our rail infrastructure.
"Although I understand that this work will cause some inconvenience to passengers, the ScotRail Alliance is working to ensure that services are maintained where possible, disruption is kept to a minimum and that passengers are kept well informed throughout the work.''
Official figures show more than 400 consultant jobs across Scotland are unfilled.
Education Secretary John Swinney will urge rival parties at Holyrood to back his plans for sweeping reforms to Scotland's schools.
Experts described the number as a "real concern''.
