HIGHLAND mainline rail passengers face disruption to journeys between Inverness and Edinburgh next month – after a series of weekend track and signal works were announced.

The maintenance affects journeys passing through parts of Fife and over the Forth Bridge and begins on Sunday, March 1 when Inverness-Edinburgh trains will be diverted via Stirling to enable work on the tracks between Haymarket and Dalmeny.

Journeys on Sunday, March 15 will also be subject to detours via Stirling – this time to accommodate maintenance across the entire Fife network between Dalmeny and Dundee.

Buses will replace all trains between Perth and Edinburgh on Saturday, March 21 to enable track work between Kinghorn and Ladybank. Trains will continue to operate between Perth and the Highland capital on that date.

On Sunday, March 22, trains will again be diverted via Stirling; while on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29, all Inverness-Edinburgh services will divert via Dunfermline.
