Development of the new Inverness Airport station is progressing successfully, Network Rail has reported.

The two-platform station on the Aberdeen-Inverness line will improve travel links to Inverness Airport Business Park and the new town of Tornagrain.

Work began on the new station last October, in a project valued at roughly 14 million GBP (16.8m euros | 18.37m USD).

This includes the building of a new access road to the station and the closure of Petty level crossing.

Site clearance has already been completed, as have the creation of embankments and the foundations for one of the platforms, the station footbridge and lifts.

Work will now begin on the creation of the platforms and the lift shafts. Sleepers will also be laid to create a passing-loop through the station.

David Millar, Project Manager for Network Rail said:

“The delivery of work on Inverness Airport Station continues to gather momentum and the recent good early spring weather allowed us to make good progress on all aspects of the work.

“Once complete, the station will enhance the local area and improve connectivity for local residents and the wider Inverness area by providing a new sustainable transport interchange.

“We will continue to work with our partners to deliver this new station as quickly as possible for our customers and the wider community.”

The station is due for completion this December.
