Online survey now live

People living or working in Fife are being encouraged to give their views on how transport links could be improved in the Levenmouth area.

The online survey, being carried out by Transport Scotland, builds on ongoing stakeholder meetings with local councillors, businesses, Stagecoach and Network Rail, amongst others, as part of the Levenmouth Sustainable Transport Study.

Transport Scotland is working closely with Fife Council to identify opportunities and challenges on the existing local transport network. As part of this work, the study will identify if further consideration should be given to progressing the proposed Levenmouth rail link.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said:

“Transport Scotland is working closely with Fife Council to progress this study of potential transport improvements in the Levenmouth area.

"As part of that work, we want to hear the views of the public and we are asking anyone with an interest in improving transport in this part of Fife to complete the online survey.

"The comments received as part of this engagement will inform the final report which is expected later this year."

Co-Leader of Fife Council, Councillor David Alexander, added:

“We want to improve transport links to help open up Levenmouth to investment, tourism and jobs. I encourage all local businesses and communities to engage with the online survey.”

Council Co-Leader, Councillor David Ross, said:

“Fife Council is committed to improving life-chances for all, and this means providing local jobs for local people and improving connectivity and regional transport.

“Improved transport will unlock growth, jobs and new housing. Everyone interested in improving the region's transport options should complete this important online survey as part of the Levenmouth Sustainable Transport Study.”

The survey can be found online.

The closing date for comments is Monday 25 June 2018.
