A plan to build a new railway station near Inverness Airport has been approved by Highland councillors.

The single platform stop on the Inverness to Aberdeen line and parking spaces for 150 cars have been proposed for a site at Dalcross.

A station close to the airport has been a long standing aspiration of Hitrans, which promotes improvements to public transport in the Highlands.

It has been proposed to open the station next year.
