Rail bridge plan submitted for Kingussie

IMPROVED accessibility is at the core of a plan submitted to erect a new passenger bridge at the rail station serving the Highland town of Kingussie.

Says the rail infrastructure company, Network Rail, which has submitted the plan, here: “The proposal for a footbridge and lifts at the station will improve accessibility for those users with reduced mobility, and those travelling with luggage, prams or bikes.

“The application for listed building consent has been made to the Highland Council and, if approved, will grant consent for a new footbridge with lifts to allow step-free access between both platforms of the station. It would also see the removal of the existing lattice iron footbridge.”
