Bridge install remains on track

Another railway footbridge project is taking shape.

Recently, a team installed the lift shafts at the new Kintore Station.

The project was secured through BAM Nuttall and is part of the on-going Aberdeen to Inverness Project which has been implemented by Network Rail.

The project began in mid-June with Pat Quinn taking control of the fabrication design works.

The installation at Kintore has to take place during weekend nights only as the railway line is still live.

Craig Johnston who is overseeing the project was onsite with the two-man AJE team to install the shafts.

He said: “The install went really well and Bam Nuttall and Network Rail were very pleased with how it went. It was a very chilly night and quite gusty so that was a bit of a challenge, however Ian and Owen who were handling the install did a sterling job.”

He added: “The next phase will be to install the stair platforms and its hopeful that the whole project will be completed before Christmas.”
