Rail passengers face months of disruption as works begin
ScotRail said the line between Aberdeen and Dyce will shut down from May 12 to August 19.
Rail passengers in the north east are set for months of disruption as major work gets under way.
ScotRail said the line between Aberdeen and Dyce will be shut down from May 12 to August 19.
Engineers will use this time to redouble the track and upgrade the signalling system.
Bridge works will also be carried out on the six-mile stretch of track.
The works will mean timetable changes and extended journey times on the Aberdeen - Inverness line, a ScotRail spokesman said.
Replacement buses will be used to transport passengers between Aberdeen and Dyce throughout the duration of the works.
Customers are advised to check the ScotRail website for information before setting off.
It comes as ScotRail faces a rising tide of complaints from passengers in the north east.
The firm was forced to apologise to customers after its new Aberdeen - Edinburgh service was hit by delays earlier this month.
And Moray MSP Richard Lochhead blasted bosses at a meeting in Elgin claiming the region was "forgotten about" amid complaints over unreliable and delayed services.
