COMMUTERS using the railway between Neilston and Glasgow tomorrow and on Wednesday are being warned that trains may be much busier than normal as music fans travel to Coldplay gigs at Hampden.

One of the stops on the Neilston to Glasgow line is Mount Florida, which is the closest station to the National Stadium, where the chart-topping band will be performing as part of their Music of the Spheres world tour.

ScotRail has also said it will be adding more trains and extra carriages for passengers travelling between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida on both days.

Passengers are advised that queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the concert and at Mount Florida station afterwards.

The train operator is asking concertgoers to head back to Mount Florida as quickly as possible after the event finishes and join the queues in Bolton Drive.

Passengers will not be able to access the station from Battlefield Drive.

To reduce the need to queue on the day, customers are also being encouraged to buy their ticket in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.

Extra staff will be on hand to assist customers and ScotRail is reminding everyone that alcohol is prohibited on its trains and in its stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail's head of customer operations, said: “We’re looking forward to helping music lovers travel by train to see Coldplay perform at our national stadium.

“To help the event run smoothly, we’re adding extra carriages to key trains, as well as more trains to and from Hampden.

“Our advice to customers is to leave extra time for travel, as trains are likely to be busier than normal. Buying tickets in advance through our mTickets system will reduce your queuing time.”
