Success at last! Trains by 2023
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 announced in August 2019 hat detailed work would 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 December 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
Network Rail’s consultation site is now live at https://scotlandsrailway.com/projects/levenmouth-reconnected-raillink/ You can see details of the line, options for stations, FAQs and contact details to ask questions and give your views.
As work has now started on the line it is dangerous to trespass on it as there may be machinery and vehicles working there and there are holes in the ground.
