Network Rail plans to build a 30m radio communications mast at Muir of Ord Station.
The mast is part of a £5m development project to extend and improve the Far North Line's radio communications network which is used for signalling and, in the future, control of points which are currently train-operated. This will remove the 15 mph speed restriction currently in place at passing loops.
Network Rail hosted video Q&A sessions which local residents were invited to attend. Cara Healy, Network Rail's project manager for the work, said, "We appreciate local people may have some initial questions when they hear we are installing a 30-metre mast at the station, but we hope the opportunity to talk with us directly will help clarify any issues and alleviate concerns."
