Aberdeen-Dyce stations review identifies challenges and opportunities

Opportunities to add railway stations to the line between Aberdeen and Dyce have been identified by consultants. Sites at Bucksburn and Kittybrewster have been ruled out due to physical constraints of their sites.

Five potential compliant sites have been identified – three in the Woodside area, one at Bankhead and one at Stoneywood. Following a workshop attended by officers from Nestrans, ScotRail and Network Rail, the consultants (AECOM) have been tasked with undertaking a planning exercise to determine which of the Woodside sites performs best in terms of demand and to model a potential timetable to consider whether two further stations (one at Woodside and one other) would be compatible with a half-hourly service to Ellon and enhanced Inverness frequency.
