ScotRail has warned commuters ahead of Scotland's Six Nations clash on Saturday as building works are set to disrupt travel.

The national team will take on France at Murrayfield at 2.15pm in their first home match of the campaign following a dramatic opening day victory in Wales.

Due to ongoing works at Haymarket Station, access is restricted and the capacity of the station has been slashed by half.

This means that ScotRail is unable to provide its normal queuing system after the game and the station will not be accessible via the ramp located at the rear of the station.

Any customers travelling from Haymarket will be required to use the main entrance. 

As a result, travellers should expect longer waiting times for the train home. Some commuters will be redirected to Edinburgh Waverley to catch their train due to the limited space available within Haymarket station.

Fans are asked to consider travelling straight to Edinburgh Waverley after the final whistle to reduce their need to queue or postponing their travel home until later in the evening. 

Edinburgh Trams operate a fast and frequent service between the entrance of the stadium and St Andrew Square tram stop - a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley.

Edinburgh City Centre is also accessible from Scottish Gas Murrayfield by several Lothian Bus services (1, 3, 12, 22, 25, 26, 30, 31 or 33).

Rugby fans are urged to plan ahead and allow additional time for travel, especially on the way home.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail customer operations director, said the firm would be doing all that it can to make journeys as seamless as possible.

To cope with large crowds of fans expected to travel to Edinburgh for the event, the rail operator is adding more seats to train routes in and out of the capital throughout the day.

ScotRail will run as many services as possible between Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Queen Street via Falkirk High between 10am and 7pm to help manage the expected increase in passenger numbers.
