Glasgow train passengers are being urged to plan ahead as heavy rain is set to batter Scotland tomorrow.

Network Rail has said travellers should plan extra time for their journeys as rain moves across the country on Tuesday, April 9.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy and persistent rain, with up to 60mm expected to fall between late this evening and 6pm tomorrow.

Due to this, speed restrictions will be in place in some sections of the Glasgow South Western Line between 9am to 3pm, with some sections on the West Coast Main Line and East Coast Main Line having restrictions between 11am and 6pm.

Liam Sumpter, route director, Network Rail Scotland, said: “Speed restrictions are being introduced as the rain moves in because we know that slowing trains down reduces the chances of striking obstructions on the line.

“Our engineering teams will respond to any issues on the railway while our control room will monitor the weather throughout the day.

“We understand that adding time to journeys is never ideal, however, we’ll remove the speed restrictions as soon as it is safe to do so.”
