TOC(s) affected

Earlier this year, South Ayrshire Council enforced an exclusion zone at Ayr station. This was because the privately-owned former Station Hotel has been deemed unsafe.

While Ayr station remains open for business, the exclusion zone means that some changes have been made to services to and from Ayr, including the cancellation of some services between Ayr and Stranraer.

A limited number of ScotRail services between Ayr and Stranraer have now been reintroduced, following work by Network Rail engineers, including a safety risk assessment and some changes to the railway infrastructure. While this hasn’t restored all services, it is a significant improvement for customers.

A reduced service will remain in operation until further notice.
