Inverness Airport Station back on the cards
December 10 2020
Network Rail with BAM Nuttal and AECOMhave drawn up fresh plans for a railway station serving Inverness Airport Business Park at Dalcross near the new town of Tornagrain.
The double platform halt will include a footbridge (scaled to allow future electrification), as well as a 64 space car park with electric charging points on farmland 685m to the south of the terminal.
Positioned on the Aberdeen to Inverness mainline the station will connect directly to the C1017 airport link road, complete with a 3m wide shared footpath and cycleway.
In a statement Network Rail wrote: "The design proposed is contemporary and sensitive, and is similar to other stations along this route. The lift towers will become a new visual feature of the area but will be viewed against the existing C1017 which is elevated in this location."
Plans for a £5m single track station at the site were first submitted in 2017 but never progressed. The latest iteration could be up and running by late 2022 subject to final approval and funding.
It would certainly make coming home to visit more appealing....
