Work underway on the site of the new Cameron Bridge station in early 2023. Network Rail

Work has commenced on construction of the new Cameron Bridge station as part of the Levenmouth Rail Link project.

The two-platform station, complete with fully accessible footbridge, will service the western end of the new route connecting the communities of Cameron Bridge and Methilhill to the rail network for the first time in more than five decades, as well as serving as a ‘park and ride’ facility for those from across the East Neuk of Fife, as a result of 125-space car park.

The work on the new station begins with the construction of the foundations for the 196-metre-long platforms. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately 10 months to complete and the station will be opened as part of the line opening in Spring 2024.

A planning application for the new facility was submitted in early October and a combination of permitted development rights and ‘prior approval’ enables the project to progress work within the confines of the railway corridor. Planning permission is still being considered by Fife Council for wider elements of the station design. Late last year, the platforms of the old Cameron Bridge station were demolished and the spoil moved to the site of the new station approximately 200m to the east, where it will be utilised within the new development.

Elsewhere, the first mile of track on the Leven branch has now been commissioned and is being used to support construction of the subsequent phases of work on the project, with fencing, re-profiling of embankments, drainage and cabling and track works on the next mile are now underway.
