Conon Bridge station in the Scottish Highland is back in business after 53 years.
The station, which closed in 1960, has been rebuilt using funds from Transport Scotland with contributions from the Highland Council, HITRANS and ScotRail.
Says Frank Roach, Partnership Manager for HITRANS, ‘We are delighted to see this project come to fruition, improving access to employment, education and leisure in Inverness and further demonstrating the key role that the railway plays in the Highlands.’
25 services a day connect Conon Bridge to Inverness and the Highlands. The new, modern station at Conon Bridge is lit by environmentally-friendly LEDs and the shelter lighting is provided by solar panels on the roof. There is also a car park, cycle rack and cycle lockers.
Conon Bridge station is proving popular with local people working in Inverness. Trains take around 25 minutes to travel to Inverness. Dingwall is approximately seven minutes to the north.
