Storm Ali update: Do not travel unless essential

The Met Office has issued an amber weather warning for high winds and heavy rain.

Storm Ali is having a severe impact on Scotland’s railway infrastructure, particularly in the Central Belt.

The storm has caused major line blockages – for example a number of trees have fallen onto the line - and overheard wires have been damaged. This has resulted in the suspension of a number of our routes.

Network Rail engineers are working flat out to get things back to normal, and ScotRail is doing everything it can to keep people moving. But services will be severely impacted for the rest of the day.

Ticket acceptance is in place with bus operators across many parts of the country, and we are working to get buses in place to replace trains on some routes.

Our advice to customers is not to travel unless it’s essential. Please check your journey before considering travelling at @ScotRail on Twitter, by downloading the ScotRail app, or by visiting
