Busy summer for rail plant


Rail plant suppliers are set for a busy summer with a series of closures planned to allow Network Rail to double the track between Dyce and Inverurie and carry out bridge upgrades.

Teams of workers will be working from May to August to complete the multi-million-pound scheme as part of the Aberdeen-Inverness Improvement Project. Over a 15-week period, engineers will lay 10 miles of rail over nearly 40,000 sleepers and replace or refurbish 19 bridges.

The new scheme follows the closure of the line last summer to complete the first phase of double-tracking between Aberdeen and Dyce.
