MORE one-day strikes that will shut down Inverclyde’s railway lines are to take place — including one this week.
Members of the RMT union who work for Network Rail are taking industrial action over pay UK-wide.
The strike days are Wednesday (27 July), Thursday, 18 August, and Saturday, 20 August.
ScotRail say services will operate on only a few routes — Glasgow to Edinburgh, Lanark and Hamilton/Larkhall and Edinburgh Bathgate.
There will also be some disruption to ScotRail services on the days before and following each strike caused the need to move trains and by the reopening of signal boxes at different times across the country.
David Simpson, ScotRail service delivery director, said: “It is very unfortunate to see such widespread disruption across the whole of the Great Britain rail network and we know this will be frustrating for ScotRail customers.
“Regrettably, this strike action by RMT members of Network Rail means that we will not be able to operate the vast majority of our services during the period of strike action. Customers should expect significant disruption to services on strike days, as well as the following day.
“On the five routes where we are able to operate a very limited service on strike days, we’re advising customers to seek alternative means of transport and to only travel if they really need to.”
