Levenmouth Rail Link plans for new bridge

15 August 2023/Categories: Operations Management, Rail

Network Rail has submitted a planning application to Fife Council to build a bridge over the new railway between Kirkland and Mountfleurie.Levenmouth Rail Link plans for new bridge: Bridge Looking West-2

It will provide a safe crossing point over the new £116m Scottish Government-funded railway, which connects Levenmouth to the rail network for the first time in over 50 years.

The structure has been designed and funded as part of Fife Council’s upgrade and expansion of active travel routes in the area and will maintain the path between Kirkland and Mountfleurie.Construction will begin on the bridge and supporting path/cycle routes in late autumn and there will be a diversion route will be in place during this time.

Martin McKinlay, senior sponsor for Network Rail said:

“We’ve been working closely with Fife Council to develop a plan which means people can still cross the railway at this well-used crossing point.

“The proposals come at a time when people locally can see the railway becoming a reality. The track is now in place through this location and is moving closer to the site of the new Leven Station.

“Our attention can now turn to how we enable people to safely cross the railway in the future and the intention is to have this structure in place prior to the railway opening.

“Given that this is such a significant structure, we know that there will be some disruption during its construction as the path will need to close. This is to allow the work to be delivered safely and we will do what we can to minimise any inconvenience.”
