Success at last! Trains by 2024?
We want to make our local community a more prosperous, healthier and attractive place to live and work. We believe reinstating the rail line to allow direct trains to/from Edinburgh is a vital requirement for this to happen.
The Scottish government has announced that detailed work will go ahead in preparation for the opening of the Levenmouth line together with improved bus, walking and cycling links for the area. There will be stations at Leven and Cameron Bridge. This is the culmination of our and many other people’s hard work over years to persuade the government of the need to reopen the line. It is expected that when it opens in 2023 trains to Edinburgh will take 70-75 minutes. See the press release at https://www.transport.gov.scot/news/levenmouth-on-track-for-rail-investment/
The final report on bus and rail alternatives is at https://www.transport.gov.scot/media/46358/detailed-options-appraisal-report-levenmouth-sustainable-transport-study.pdf
Meetings are currently cancelled.
Scotrail have reduced services to roughly hourly on the Fife Circle and two hourly to Dundee, starting a little later and finishing in the early evening. Details are at https://www.scotrail.co.uk/coronavirus-travel-information#accordion-in-content–3 Other operators are also reducing services. Buses are generally running a Sunday or lesser service on ley routes with some additional early services during the week.
