Platform one is scheduled to reopen on Friday July 30, when trains between Glasgow Central and Ayr will return to normal operation.

ScotRail operations director David Simpson said: “We regret any disruption to services because we know how it will inconvenience our customers.

“However, the dreadful fire at Troon station left our colleagues at Network Rail with no option but to close the line, and we had to revise our services accordingly.

“It’s great to see that we are resuming services from Glasgow to Ayr today, with a full timetable expected to be operating on Friday, 30 July.”
