Cameron Bridge station footbridge installed


Network Rail has installed the footbridge at Cameron Bridge station as part of the new £116m Levenmouth Rail Link development.

It’s the latest step forward for the Scottish Government-funded project which will see passenger trains return to the Levenmouth branch line for the first time in more than five decades.

Eleven sections making up the main framework of the steel bridge and lift-towers were successfully craned into position on the new platforms.

The largest section, the main bridge span, is 15 metres long and sits more than six metres above the track to enable clearance for electrification.

Two lift towers stand 11 metres high and are visible from the surrounding area serving as a new landmark for the new Cameron Bridge station.


It is the only station footbridge on the line as Leven boasts an island platform to enable step-free access to the station.

Located southeast of Windygates just off the A915, the station will have 125 car parking spaces with provision for electric vehicle charging, accessible spaces and cycle storage.

A bus stop and turning circle will be on site and the station will connect to local communities via new footpaths. Methilhill will also connect to the new station via a new active travel bridge over the river to the south.

Joe Mulvenna, Network Rail’s project manager for the Levenmouth Rail Link project, said: “Installation of the footbridge is another visible step forward in the project’s delivery. We’re grateful to the team at Cameron Bridge for completing this challenging element of the project safely and efficiently.

“The bridge and lifts will help deliver easy access between platforms in the station which will serve the surrounding communities as well as acting as a park and ride facility for people from slightly further afield.

“Work will now continue, both on the bridge and the wider station development, which will help open the area to new opportunities and transform this community.”
