TRAIN SERVICES to and from Ayr returned to normal on 20 December following disruption caused by a dangerous building. In September South Ayrshire Council enforced an exclusion zone at the station because the privately-owned former Station Hotel building had been deemed unsafe. This caused disruption to ScotRail services between Glasgow Central and Ayr, Girvan, Stranraer and Kilmarnock. The successful encapsulation of the building allowed ScotRail to resume access to Ayr Townhead depot and to reintroduce a full service. The operator said the temporary station facilities and ticket office would remain in place.
