ScotRail will introduce a temporary train timetable between Kilmarnock and Glasgow from tomorrow, affecting local passengers, as the dispute with drivers' union ASLEF continues.

It will mean fewer trains between local stations and Glasgow at certain times of the day, with the temporary measures set to be in place until at least Sunday, July 21.

The rail firm said the move would "provide greater certainty and reliability for customers".

This move comes as a result of the impact of fewer train drivers than normal currently being available for overtime or rest day working, following confirmation from drivers’ union ASLEF that it will recommend to its Executive Committee a ballot for industrial action over pay.

Over the past number of weeks, the train operator has been in pay discussions with the rail trade unions, ASLEF, RMT, TSSA, and Unite.

A formal pay offer in line with the Scottish Government’s public sector pay policy was made on Friday, July 5, however, this was rejected by all four trade unions.

The temporary timetable will see ScotRail operating around 1,660 services each day Monday to Saturday, which they said was nearly 200 more services than the one introduced in 2022 when there was similar disruption.
