Kintore installation date TBC
Work at Kintore Railway Station is on a temporary hold, but the last set of stairs are away for shot blasting and specialist paint coating.
Project manager, Craig Johnston is having regular talks with contractor BAM Nuttall, Network Rail and the paint company and whilst Network rail has taken the decision to close all its enhancement projects in Scotland, Craig is progressing the project as far as he can.
Craig said: “At the moment, all we can do, is carry on and get the stairs ready so that when everything re-opens again, we can get on site and get them installed.”
He added: “I am in daily talks with the firm handling the shot blasting and paint coating. They have had a few hurdles to get over in light of the current situation, but their communication has been great and at the moment, they are confident, they will be able to complete their part of the works on time.”
The project is part of the on-going Aberdeen to Inverness Project which has been implemented by Network Rail.
The project began last June when Pat Quinn took control of the fabrication design works.
Work at Kintore can only take place during weekend nights only as the railway line is still live.
