Network Rail: Lines through Clydebank set for clearance



THERE will be no disruption to trains through Clydebank when work begins to clear the tracks of vegetation, according to the body charged with maintaining the line.

Network Rail is to begin tree and vegetation management on the line near Yoker later this month.

The work, which Network Rail advises will last until April 2023, will be carried out along a five-mile stretch of the line to clear trees and vegetation from land adjacent to the railway and within the railway boundary. 

The project will also treat any noxious and invasive non-native weeds within the railway corridor.

Kirsty Armstrong, scheme project manager for the vegetation clearance work said: “Network Rail manages thousands of miles of trees and vegetation along the railway to maintain safety for passengers and lineside communities and to make sure the railway runs efficiently.

“Our work between Jordanhill and Dalmuir will create a clear, tree-free corridor on either side of the railway to reduce the risks that large trees and overgrown vegetation can pose – particularly to an electrified railway.

“Elements of this work are unavoidably at night for safety reasons, however, the teams are always mindful of the impact their work may have and do what they can to minimise this. We want to apologise in advance if anyone is disturbed by the project.”

As well as extensive daytime activity, the project will also need to work at night to clear trees and vegetation closest to the railway. The work can only be undertaken safely when trains are not running.
