Network Rail engineers have begun work to repair damage caused to the railway by a landslip today on the Highland main line between Carrbridge and Slochd.

The engineering works are expected to be completed in time for the start of services on Wednesday, May 2.

More than 2,000 tons of rock will be installed to stabilise the affected line after a 60ft section of the railway lineside gave way shortly after 0800 this morning due to heavy rain.

David Simpson, Network Rail route managing director for Scotland, said: “Every effort is being made to restore full services as quickly as we can. We are also working with train operators to limit disruption to journeys as much as possible while we carry out our repair works.”
