When completed the station will also provide improved travel access to the Inverness Airport Business Park and Tornagrain. 

Project manager for Network Rail David Millar said: “Next year promises to be an exciting and busy one for this project. 

“On completion the new station will enhance the local area and improve connectivity for nearby residents and the wider Inverness area by providing a new sustainable transport interchange.  

“Getting on-site to start the build is a significant milestone in the project and we have made good early progress. 

“We will continue to work with our partners to deliver this new station as quickly as possible for our customers and the wider community.”
