People across Scotland are set for three days of travel disruption as RMT announced the dates of a national strike that will be taking place across the Great Britain railway network.

Across June 21, 23 and 25 there will be a very limited number of services operating only in the Central Belt, with Dumbarton being unserviced during strike days.

Only five routes will operate, with no service on any other route.

As it stands, no service will be operating in Dumbarton, only the following services will operate between 7:30am and 6:30pm on June 21, 23 and 25:

  • Edinburgh – Glasgow via Falkirk High: two trains per hour
  • Edinburgh – Bathgate: two trains per hour
  • Glasgow – Hamilton/Larkhall: two trains per hour
  • Glasgow – Lanark: two trains per hour
  • Edinburgh – Glasgow via Shotts: one train per hour

No other areas will be serviced during these days.

During these days Scotrail has urged people not to travel unless necessary, and if you do then you should expect disruption and plan ahead.

On the days following strike action, there will be disruption caused by the reopening of signal boxes at different times across the country.

Scotrail says that while the large signalling centres at Yoker, West of Scotland and Edinburgh will be able to operate from 0715 this will not be the case at manual boxes elsewhere and it may well be early afternoon before many routes are able to operate as normal.

This is particularly the case for routes out with the Central Belt.

David Simpson, ScotRail Service Delivery Director, said: “It is very unfortunate to see such widespread disruption across the whole of the Great Britain rail network and we know this will be frustrating for ScotRail customers.

“On the five routes where we are able to operate a very limited service on strike days, we’re advising customers to seek alternative means of transport and to only travel if they really need to.”

You can see all services that are running on June 22 and 24 on the website here.
