Planning applications for new stations at Cameron Bridge and Leven as part of the Levenmouth Rail Link project in Scotland have been submitted by Network Rail.
Proposals for Cameron Bridge include a two-platform station with footbridge and lifts, waiting shelters and ticket machines. There would also be a car park area, initially offering 125 spaces with a contingency to grow to more than 300 spaces.
Leven, meanwhile, would get a station with a 210m island platform accessed on the level – eliminating the need for a footbridge and lifts. Although it includes some parking, the building of walkways would allow direct connectivity to the High Street, to the promenade as well as to the bus station to prioritise transport interchange and use of enhanced active travel routes.
Lisa Cameron, Network Rail’s planning lead for the station developments said: “The submission of the planning applications for the station developments is another massive step forward on the road to putting Leven and Cameron Bridge back on the railway map and it is great to see so many local people engaging with the development.
“Securing planning permission for the developments will enable us to then focus fully on the delivery of the stations that will be the gateway to the network for communities that have been denied access to the railway for more than 50 years.”
Following the submission of the applications to Fife Council, the applications will be open for review and comment as part of the normal statutory planning process.
