Kintore Station to Reopen

>> 7 December 2012

SNP councillors have welcomed the announcement by Scottish Transport Minister Keith Brown that the station at Kintore will reopen between 2014 and 2019.

In a statement they commented:

"This is fantastic news for the residents of Kintore and the surrounding communities.  We have made representations in the new Local Development Plan process for the station to be reopened at Kintore.  What is not clear at the moment is whether it will be a single track arrangement or if a double track will be laid between Kintore and Inverurie to allow trains to pass without disruption or delay.

“Kintore is a very popular place for people to live and the reopening of the station will bring huge transport advantages to the residents. We am very excited about this announcement and cannot wait to try out the new service

"The numbers certainly stack up, we am sure Network Rail will not be disappointed by the numbers of people who would use the service from Kintore.  When the station reopened in Laurencekirk passenger numbers greatly exceeded expectations and we see no reason not to have the same success at Kintore.”
