Train commuters will have to travel on other modes of transport after the trains between Aberdeen and Dyce will be cancelled for 14 weeks starting in May.  

New improvements to the Aberdeen to Inverness line is the cause of the closure and ScotRail has provided arranged bus replacement services starting from May to August. The improvements include making a double track so that two trains can operate at the same time which will allow half-hourly train times from Aberdeen to Inverurie.

Many people have agreed that the improvements need to be carried out and that it will improve their travelling experience. One commuter said: “It has to be done and they have relevant replacements which helps with busy times”  

Another said: “It is frustrating but hopefully the improvements help trains to become more regular and less delays in services”
