FRB JV working with the Local Community

Farrans Roadbridge, currently constructing the A737 Dalry Bypass for Transport Scotland were pleased to make a donation to the Dalry Station Garden Group (DSGG). The garden volunteers got together in 2015 to improve the station environment with guidance from ScotRail’s ‘adopt-a-station’ scheme and the support of ScotRail’s Maintenance Team.

They have endeavoured to create a biodiverse oasis for wildlife with items of interest, heritage and culture for passengers to enjoy; and to attract visitors to Dalry.

On this three-acre site (the largest station garden in Scotland) there is a meadow, sixty Native Trees, a Bug Hotel, Bird Feeders, Nest boxes, Bee Friendly Planters and a Bog Garden.

Anne Bell from the DSGG said “Dalry Station Garden Group wishes to thank Farrans Roadbridge for their donation which enabled the group to buy three high quality planters for the entrance to the station at Platform 1. The planters provide a splash of colour which will give cheer to travellers for many years to come.”

Brian Snow, FRB Project Manager said “We are very pleased to have contributed to the station with the planters.  The whole of the community and visitors can appreciate these long after the bypass is finished.”
