Scottish rail improvements set to increase capacity

Network Rail is upgrading track, signalling and power line improvements to increase capacity and flexibility on one of the country’s busiest routes in Scotland, the rail infrastructure owner and operator said.

Engineers will be renewing and extending track, signalling and overhead power lines between Glasgow and Paisley over the next four weekends as part of the £170M project.

Network Rail said that once complete in January, the Paisley Corridor Improvements project will improve capacity on the route and allow for increased levels of service between Glasgow and Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.

The Paisley corridor is being three-tracked and having new signalling systems installed as part of the ongoing enhancement project, while the final stretch of the line from Arkleston to Paisley Gilmour Street will also be upgraded to a four-track railway.
