In anticipation of the tunnel closure for repairs at Queen Street station, ScotRail has announced the publication of digital timetables to begin on Sunday, March 20.

The timetables, which will allow passengers to quickly check whether their journeys will be affected, will be available to the public from today.

And, to help commuters understand the changes, there will be an interactive map that shows how trains will be diverted throughout the tunnel closure.

Commuters can select their departure station and see the new routes to and from Queen Street Low Level and/or Glasgow Central.

Jacqueline Taggart, ScotRail Alliance’s customer experience director, said: “We’re advising customers to download the timetables straight away, so they can plan how and when they can travel for the duration of the work.

“We’re doing everything we can to alert customers to the change.

“From this week we’ve got staff at key stations giving out handy, pocket-sized leaflets with loads of information about key route chnges.”
