The railway line between Aberdeen and Dundee in Scotland will reopen on 3 November, after it had to shut following the Stonehaven derailment in August.
Repair works, starting with building an access road to the remote site and clearing the wreckage, also included fixing the track, bridge, embankments and draining systems at the site. Specifically engineers:
“We continue to work closely with accident investigators as we seek to learn the lessons of this tragedy and make our railway as safe as possible for our people and our passengers.
“Our thoughts continue to be with the families and friends of Brett, Donald and Christopher and with the other passengers and colleagues who were affected by the accident.
“Our engineers have been working around-the-clock to repair and reopen the railway and we thank all our customers and lineside neighbours for the understanding they have shown during this difficult and distressing event.”
ScotRail has been running a shuttle between Aberdeen and Stonehaven as well as between Montrose and Edinburgh. There have also been replacement bus services between Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
