Work has begun on replacing the level crossing here, which is currently an Open Crossing requiring all trains to stop before crossing the road. The new equipment will be an ABCL (Automatic [full] Barrier Crossing, Locally Monitored), allowing trains to pass at permitted line speed if no passengers are using the station. A Network Rail spokesperson explained, "When the Level Crossing Renewals Plan for Control Period 6 (2019 - 2024) was created several years ago it was assumed that the new bridge at Delny would have been built by now and the crossing closed. As the level crossing equipment at Delny is still relatively new the intention was to 'lift and shift' the kit to Kildonan so that the remaining life (circa 30 years) of those assets could be harvested. Unfortunately the bridge at Delny did not make the progress expected so the crossing installation at Kildonan will be built from scratch with new materials."
The temporary office accommodation seen in this picture is to provide facilities for the works delivery staff because of the remoteness of the location.
