The latest phase in a project to upgrade the railway between Aberdeen and Inverness is now under way.
Over the next two months, Network Rail engineers will be carrying out extensive de-vegetation work on the line around Kittybrewster and Tillydrone, to prepare for the doubling of the track.
By the end of 2019, it’s hoped that the scheme will deliver a half-hourly service between Aberdeen and Inverurie, and will improve commuter services between Inverness and Elgin.
Network Rail will host a drop-in for residents in Sainsbury’s in Kittybrewster on Thursday between noon and 7pm to talk about the ongoing work.
Billy McKay, Network Rail senior programme manager, said: “We understand some our activities may disturb our neighbours in the short-term, but we are committed to delivering this project as quickly as possible and with a minimum of inconvenience for communities.”
