"The Aberdeen to Inverness Rail Upgrade" by Stacey Lynch, Communications Manager, Network Rail Aberdeen meeting of 22 March 2016

The Aberdeen to Inverness Improvement Project is a Scottish Government funded enhancement program to deliver greater connectivity, capacity and reliability between the 2 cities. Phase 1 of the scheme is a £170m package of works that will deliver enhanced commuter services to each city and facilitate the construction of new stations at Kintore and Inverness Airport (Dalcross).

These improvements include: the redoubling of the track between Aberdeen and Inverurie; signalling enhancements between Nairn and Elgin; platform extensions at Insch and Elgin to allow for longer trains; the relocation of Forres station; loop extension of the track at Forres, and infrastructure to allow new stations at Dalcross and Kintore.

Stacey joined Network Rail in 2012 and currently heads up communications for both the Aberdeen to Inverness Improvement Project and the Highland Mainline Project. She manages all stakeholder, public, press and lineside neighbour engagement, driving positive public awareness of the schemes. Stacey relocated from Glasgow in 2015, to be embedded within the communities that the projects will benefit.
