  • Jubilant campaigners are celebrating - Levenmouth rail link to reopen in 70m project

    Created: 08/08/2019

    The incredible commitment and work of those behind the Levenmouth Rail Campaign, as well as the thousands of Fifers who backed the campaign have ensured that the disused rail line in Fife is to be reopened after being closed for decades. Passenger travel ceased on the line 50 years ago in 1969. A great example of an empowered community!

    A proposed rail link with stops in Leven and Cameron Bridge combined with improved bus services as well as cycling and walking facilities emerged as the best performing options in the Levenmouth Sustainable Transport Study.  The appraisal concluded that these measures would enhance employment opportunities as well as access to education, health and leisure services.

    Transport Secretary Michael Matheson said he hoped the line would be operational within five years. It is estimated the project, which also includes improved bus services, cycle and walking facilities, will cost about £70m.
