A village railway platform has been officially reopened by Transport Minister Keith Brown.

The stop at Conon Bridge in Ross-shire has been shut since 1960.

The new £600,000 platform is part of a package of measures put together by Transport Scotland to ease congestion during work on the Kessock Bridge.

Network Rail said the project to redevelop the railway site had been delivered on schedule and within budget.

Resurfacing work starts on the Kessock Bridge on Monday and runs until June 2013.

Further works are planned for February to June 2014.

The new Conon Bridge station will service the Far North and the Kyle Lines.
