North East Fife MP, Sir Menzies Campbell has called on the Scottish Government to state its intentions with regard to the re-introduction of the Levenmouth rail link.
In a letter to the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Sir Menzies, whose constituency includes Leven East, has asked for clarification on what plans, if any, the Scottish government has for the re-introduction of the Leven to Thornton line.
Sir Menzies remarked on the “vital importance” of the regeneration of the Levenmouth area and that the re-introduction of the line would be “hugely beneficial” to this end and noted that “The provision of good public service links would aid economic development, assist tourism, and reduce CO2 emissions.”

Dear Mr Stevenson
I should be grateful if you could tell me what plans, if any, the Scottish government has for the re-introduction of the Levenmouth passenger railway link.
The regeneration of the Levenmouth area is of vital importance and the re-introduction of the passenger rail link would be hugely beneficial. The provision of good public service links would aid economic development, assist tourism, and reduce CO2 emissions.
I look forward to your response.
