PLANS to replace a train station's signalling system have been welcomed by Clydebank's MSP.
Yoker Train Station, at the very edge of the Clydebank and Milngavie, boundary will undergo renewal by April year.
Most delays and cancellations are due to signal faults at this particular section of the line, Gil Paterson MSP said.
The MSP welcomed the upgrade and praised actions by the Scottish Government to reduce delays.
Mr Paterson said: "I am glad to see the ScotRail Alliance Improvement Plan includes upgrades to the service in Clydebank.
"The performance of ScotRail since Abellio took over has rightly been under fire for delays it has caused my constituents — so this is good news.
"Signalling faults are to blame for many delays and cancellations, especially on this line going through Clydebank. The signalling upgrade will help alleviate delays."
The upgrade is outlined in the ScotRail Alliance Improvement Plan in the Glasgow & West Infrastructure Improvement Plan section.
On November 29, Transport Minister Humza Yousaf launched the improvement plan which aims to address delays and cancellations on Scotland's railways.
