A new double track railway has started taking shape in Aberdeen.
Network Rail has been carrying out upgrades between Aberdeen and Dyce as part of its Aberdeen to Inverness Improvement Project.
This week construction workers began to lay new sleepers and railway track – part of the first phase of the initiative which will improve connectivity and capacity.
Signalling and track between Aberdeen and Dyce has already been removed, and bridges at Farburn Terrace and Station Road have been removed and replaced to accommodate the line, as well as new decks installed on two underpasses.
Billy McKay, Network Rail senior programme manager for the project, said: “A large volume of work has already been carried out and although we know it is an inconvenience to those that would normally use the line, it will bring long-term benefits.
“This is a major engineering project that requires skilled engineers, detailed project and logistics management.
“We thank our lineside neighbours for their patience while these works are being carried out.”
He confirmed that the firm is still on schedule to complete the works on August 20.
