ARCHITECTS APPOINTED TO DESIGN NEW REVAMPED INVERNESS RAILWAY STATION
Highland Council, transport body Hitrans and Abellio ScotRail have jointly commissioned Dundee-based Nicoll Russell Studios. The design work could be completed by early next year.
Abellio has offered to invest £2m into the revamp, while Highland Council has money allocated for making improvements to the site's Station Square.
The local authority and Hitrans also proposes to apply for funding from a scheme run by Network Rail on behalf of the Scottish Government.
Inverness' provost Helen Carmichael said: "We are absolutely delighted to be partnering Abellio ScotRail and Hitrans in developing designs to transform Inverness Rail Station.
"The station is such an important gateway to the city centre because it creates a first impression for many of our visitors. "Making the most of the station and its surroundings is a top priority in regenerating the city centre and making it a more attractive place to live, work and visit.
