Meanwhile, Network Rail has imposed speed restrictions as travellers have been urged to check for cancellations.

ScotRail customer operations director Phil Campbell said: “We will be working closely with our colleagues at Network Rail Scotland to ensure we are able to keep moving as much as possible, but customers should also expect that their journeys will take longer than usual, and there could be some cancellations.”
