RAIL passengers are set to face disruption as improvements are carried out on a number of lines on Sunday. 

Network Rail engineers will be upgrading the lines running between Glasgow Central and Newton/Neilston and Kilmarnock and East Kilbride throughout the day, with replacement bus services running for the duration.

Passengers planning to travel from Glasgow Central to stations including Barrhead, Clarkston, Crossmyloof, Pollokshaws West, Giffnock and Thorntonhall will be affected.

Passengers are urged to take extra time when travelling as journey times are likely to be increased.
