The Levenmouth rail link, local bus, and active travel interventions will provide an integrated transport solution
Stantec UK Limited was appointed by Transport Scotland, the national transport agency for Scotland, to undertake further appraisal work necessary to complete the Levenmouth Sustainable Transport Study in line with Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG).
The study appraised a range of multi-modal transport options that could help address the identified transport-related problems and realise the opportunities across the Levenmouth area. We delivered all three stages of the STAG appraisal process, collaborating with both Transport Scotland and Fife Council. We recommended two options that were worthy of further consideration by Transport Scotland: improvements to local bus services connecting residential settlements in the Levenmouth area to Leven and the provision of a rail line along the alignment of the existing, but out of use, rail line between Thornton North Junction and Leven.
The appraisal concluded that improved transport links, which give Leven a direct rail link to Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, will lead to an enhanced local economy, bringing better access to employment, education, retail, and leisure services as well as the potential for new investment.
