S5O-01481: John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 8 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Network Rail concerning the impact on bus services when its engineering work requires road closures.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 16 November 2017

Transport Scotland encourages Network Rail to plan engineering work with local partners well in advance to minimise potential disruption to local communities and the travelling public and thus enable, in respect of road closures, local authorities and Regional Transport Partnerships, who are responsible for ensuring the provision of alternative bus services, sufficient time to assess and if necessary implement alternative arrangements.
