There will be no trains running from Glasgow to Ayr until Friday at the very earliest, Scotrail have said.

The service from Glasgow to Ayr will continue to terminate at Kilwinning as it has done today due to the fire at Troon station on the weekend.

And a replacement bus service will be provided from tomorrow but officials have warned travellers that space will be limited to allow for physical distancing.

Scotrail announced the news a short while ago with a statement on their website. The statement reads: "Following the serious fire at Troon station on Saturday, 17 July, ScotRail is advising customers will not be able to travel by train from Glasgow Central to Ayr until Friday, July 23 at the earliest.

"Services from Glasgow Central to Ayr will start and terminate at Kilwinning.

"Replacement bus transport will be provided from Tuesday, July 20, however, customers should check their journey on the ScotRail app or ScotRail's social media channels before setting out.

"To allow for physical distancing, space on the replacement buses will be limited.

"Work to make the fire-damaged areas of the Troon station building safe is underway and this will allow for engineers to complete safety checks on the overhead lines, platforms, and the track.

"Glasgow – Largs / Ardrossan services are running normally."
