A north-east railway line will be closed this week after part of a bridge wall collapsed – close to the site of a fatal train crash
It was less than a mile from the site of a fatal derailment which caused the deaths of Donald Dinnie, Brett McCullough and Christopher Stuchbury last August.
Network Rail said it was making good progress on the damage, which it had earlier described as “extensive”.
However, engineers are facing a number of challenges getting access to the site, including the height and location of the bridge.
As a result, the line between Stonehaven and Montrose will be closed for at least the next week.
Liam Sumpter, Network Rail route director for Scotland, said: “We are sorry for the disruption the closure of the line between Montrose and Stonehaven is causing to some customers.
“Our engineers are continuing their structural assessment of the damage to the bridge parapet. These checks are progressing well, but the height of the structure and its rural location make this a complex project for our engineers to carry out safely.
