Engineering works on the West Coast Main Line are set to cause severe disruption for rail passengers over the Easter bank holiday weekend. Shawfield junction, south of Glasgow, is undergoing a £4m signal and track upgrade which will not be completed until Tuesday morning. Passengers travelling between Scotland and northern England will be affected. Network Rail admitted the work would cause disruption, but said a short-term line closure was unavoidable.
