Network Rail, in partnership with their principal contractor, BAM Nuttall, have created an innovative virtual reality (VR) experience showcasing the A-I project works completed so far between Aberdeen and Dyce.
The project has installed a six metre cylindrical pod on the concourse at Aberdeen Station. This eye catching installation will be displaying a 360-degree virtual reality film to showcase the works that have been achieved by the project teams so far in 2018.
The VR film gives members of the public a never before seen glimpse of the railway line – the bird’s eye view – and will be open between 6th to 12th of October from 10 am to 6 pm each day.
Matthew Spence, Network Rail’s Route Delivery Director for Scotland said, “It was fascinating to see this film as it highlights the railway enhancement in a new way, helping the public to understand the complex work that has taken place to build the second track from Aberdeen to Dyce. A big thanks goes to all the team who worked hard to complete this phase of the project and to the public for their patience and understanding throughout the construction.”
Jerry Dickson, BAM Nuttall’s, HEP Framework Manager said, “The credit must go to our teams who worked consistently for 14 weeks this summer to deliver the new infrastructure between Aberdeen to Dyce and it is fantastic to see the works through this creative film.Our focus now shifts to delivering the next section of re-doubled track between Dyce and Inverurie.”
