Scotrail issue Scottish Cup Final travel disruption warning
Scots travel bosses are warning of potential travel chaos ahead of a busy weekend of sport.
Celtic are set to take on Hearts at Hampden in the Scottish Cup Final at 3pm on Saturday.
Rugby fans will then head to Celtic Park at 6.30pm to see Glasgow Warriors in the Guiness Pr014 final.
Extra carriages will be added to trains in a bid to accommodate as many fans as possible.
But Scotrail has warned supporters to leave extra time for travel.
A queuing system will be implemented at affected stations.
Glasgow Centreal, Mount Florida, Kings Park, Bellgrove and Dalmarnock will all be affected.
Extra staff will also be available on the day.
Alcohol will also be banned on the day.
ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell told Glasgow Live: “It’s the last big weekend of sport for a while, and it’s going to be a busy few days.
“To help the events run smoothly, we’ll be adding extra seats to as many trains as possible. And although we can’t make every train longer, we will be using every train we can.
