The countdown is on...

A press release from Network Rail on Friday 23 February announced "100 days to go" until the return of rail services to Levenmouth.

The Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Fiona Hyslop, switched on an official countdown clock at Edinburgh Waverley to mark the milestone.

Countdown clocks were also unveiled at the new stations in Leven and Cameron Bridge, ahead of ScotRail services starting on Sunday 2 June.

The £116 million Scottish Government funded Levenmouth Rail Link project will introduce a new six-mile double-tracked line. This will reconnect Fife communities to the railway after 55 years.

Engineers are continuing to work across the six-mile rail corridor, which runs from the existing railway at Thornton Junction to Leven.  

The two new stations will be fully accessible with car parking, electric vehicle charging points and links to the local bus network.
