Weekly Update @ 5th December: An interview this week in Holyrood Magazine with the Scottish Minister for Transport confirms the fact that the current climate for rail investment is very challenging in terms of public finances and that we are fortunate the Levenmouth reinstatement is already well underway. Had the decision not been taken in August 2019, then we might still be campaigning.

"The Scottish Govt is having to focus on those projects that make the most economic and environmental sense, sitting alongside decarbonisation, which is the priority at the moment. “But Levenmouth is an incredibly exciting project and you see what happened with the Borders railway”. However, to maximize this, the Scottish Government needs to be pressing companies such as Diageo and Malcolm to be proactive in advancing the use of freight on the line when it opens in December 2021. Diageo operations generate at least 50 HGV lorry movement each day, on average, probably more so it is vital that the huge opportunity the Levenmouth line offers to serve Diageo operations is taken thereby reducing congestion, air pollution and damage to inadequate local roads.

At the LMRC zoom meeting this week, the issue of access to stations for mobility-impaired users was discussed and this needs to be a key consideration when Network Rail’s consultation, on station plans and facilities takes place promised within the next month or two.
