Glasgow train services disrupted by faulty power cable as football fans issued warning iStock

Train services are facing disruption in Glasgow after a faulty power cable was identified on a busy line.

ScotRail confirmed on Saturday afternoon that a “signalling fault” was causing disruption to services between Partick and Andertson.

Fans travelling to Celtic’s Scottish Premiership game with Kilmarnock are being urged to travel through Bellgrove and Carntyne rather than Dalmarnock station.

Network Rail say the issue has been caused by a fault with a power cable in the tunnel between Anderston and Exhibition Centre.

The operator aims to have the fault fixed by 3.30pm but National Rail say disruption could last until 5pm.

A Network Rail statement read: “Our team have confirmed that a faulty power cable is causing the disruption and we aim to have this fixed by 15:30.

“In the meantime, the Integrated Control team are working on the plan to reintroduce ScotRail services ASAP once repairs are complete.”

ScotRail posted on X: “Services via Queen Street low level are operating as normal this afternoon.

“Fans travelling to Celtic Park should use Bellgrove, Duke St & Carntyne stations as alternatives due to disruption via Dalmarnock. We’re working closely with Network Rail to restore service here ASAP.”

A National Rail statement read: “A fault with the signalling system between Partick and Glasgow Central means trains running between these stations may be cancelled or revised.

“Disruption is expected until 17:00.”
