The Levenmouth Rail Link Project is set to see plans for its extension through the proposed station developments in Leven and Cameron Bridge, with people from the local area being afforded the opportunity to see these plans ahead of their submission for planning applications to Fife Council.
The plans are set to be unveiled by Network Rail and will detail the plans for new stations at two different drop-in events to be held near to the proposed station sites.
Invitations have been issued to those in the local communities to view these proposals, ensuring there is cohesion and support for these possibly invasive planning projects. At the events, people will be able to meet members of the team who will deliver the stations and ask any questions they may have direct to the project.
The events will take place at:
- Cameron Bridge will be from 4pm-7pm on Monday 3rd October at the Methilhill Bowling Club, Main Street, Methilhill, KY8 2DP
- For Leven, it will be between 4pm-7pm on Tuesday 4th October at the Leven Centre, Commercial Road, Leven, KY8 4QW
These plans have been developed in conjunction with stakeholders and the drop-ins follow on from Fife Council’s consultation on the wider ‘place-making’ aspects of the station developments.
Martin McKinlay, Network Rail’s sponsor for the Levenmouth Rail link project said:
“The level of interest in the development of the stations and the project in general is phenomenal.
“We are looking forward to meeting the communities around the stations and we are confident that what we are proposing caters for their needs as future station users.
"We look forward to meeting everyone at the Community Drop-ins, presenting the plans for the station and answering any questions on the project”.
The feedback from the community will be taken into consideration ahead of the infrastructural project’s submission of planning consent, with works targeted for construction completion of the stations in Spring 2024.
