Cameron Bridge Platform Spoil

Demolition work completed at Cameron Bridge

Network Rail have announced that the demolition work being undertaken on the old station platforms at Cameron Bridge is complete.

This project is all part of work being done to clear the way for the double track railway, reconnecting Leven with the mainline rail network. The first mile was successfully completed in March, with the latest news bringing significant progress on the second mile, as well as the old platforms.

The platforms that have been demolished were made up of around 500 tonnes of masonry and fill materials, with all the materials now being used as infill for the new Cameron Bridge station. This new station will be constructed only 200 metres to the east of the former site.

Project Manager for the Levenmouth Rail Link Project, Joe Mulvenna, said:

“The platform demolitions offer further evidence of the progress now being made on the delivery of the project.

“Work is ongoing all across the route and activity is set to ramp-up even further in the coming months and so we are asking people who have previously used the area to walk dogs, for leisure or for exercise to please find an alternative.

“Increased work activity means more vehicle movements and the first-mile section is now a live railway and so very dangerous.  Our priority is safety, both of the local people and for those working hard to deliver the project, and the best way to promote safety is by now asking local people not to continue to use the railway corridor.”

Residents of the Cameron Bridge area will be given the opportunity to have a look at the final plans for the new station before they are submitted for planning consideration. This can be done at one of two community drop-ins from 4pm-7pm on Monday 3rd October.
