GSW: forthcoming 13 day closure - Posted: July 5, 2019 - 6:40 PM Quote and reply
Engineers will be delivering upgrade works on the line between Kilmarnock and Carlisle from Saturday, July 13, to Thursday, July 25.
Over two miles of new track will be laid, and drainage systems improved, at locations along the line between Auchinleck and Dumfries during the project.
Two railway bridges on the line will undergoing refurbishment and strengthening works, with platform maintenance also taking place.
Due to the complexity of the engineering work and the heavy machinery involved, these upgrades cannot be delivered without the short-term closure of the line.
Buses will replace trains between Kilmarnock and Carlisle on Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14, and then between Kilmarnock and Dumfries from Monday, July 15, until Thursday, July 25.
