Scotland's rail network vulnerable as problems mount, regulator warns
Office of Rail and Road says bad winter weather could lead to further difficulties on beleaguered ScotRail services
Scotland’s rail network faces mounting problems as performance targets are missed and overspending grows on upgrade work, the rail regulator has warned.
In more bad news for Humza Yousaf, the Scottish transport minister, the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) has predicted even worse problems on the network if there is bad weather this winter. Despite Network Rail cutting a key performance target to make improvements more achievable, a bad winter could further derail its plans because it has no margin left for mistakes or problems.
