Vital engineering works affect trains on East Lothian routes

Posted: 5th September 2017

The ScotRail Alliance is asking customers to check their journey times before they travel, as improvement works are taking place two Saturdays in September on routes through East Lothian.

As part of our work to build the best railway Scotland has ever had, essential track maintenance work is taking place on the east coast mainline. On Saturdays 16 and 23 September, buses replace trains between Edinburgh and Dunbar. Buses also replace trains to North Berwick on 23 September while the essential engineering work takes place.

Rob Shorthouse, ScotRail Alliance communications director, said: “We are working hard to build the best railway that Scotland has ever had. We know that having your regular journey changed can be a pain, but all this work really is going to be worth it. We are carrying out the biggest upgrade to the network since it was built in Victorian times – and it will mean more seats, faster, more reliable journeys and more and better services.

“You can find out more about these changes and what it means for your own journey by visiting the ScotRail website or by downloading our free app. Even although your normal journey might be different while this work is going on, we will keep you moving.”
