Travel advice for Celtic v Hearts

Posted: 17th May 2017

The ScotRail Alliance is advising fans heading to the match at Celtic Park on Sunday 21 May to leave extra time for their journeys, as services through Bellgrove, Bridgeton and Dalmarnock stations are expected to be exceptionally busy.

Customers on the Newton and Hamilton lines should be aware that essential track replacement works will be taking place. As a result, buses will replace trains between Bridgeton and Motherwell via Hamilton, and also between Bridgeton and Newton. In addition, services between Milngavie and Motherwell will be diverted via Whifflet. Customers travelling via Glasgow Central Low Level to Dalmarnock will not be affected.

Fans travelling from the east are reminded that direct services to the stadium are available from Edinburgh, by catching a train towards Helensburgh Central and alighting at Bellgrove.

A ScotRail Alliance spokesperson said: “Extra staff will be on hand to assist, please follow their instructions to make your journey to the game as smooth as possible. Please buy your tickets in advance, not on the day, as this will help reduce your need to queue.”
