The Levenmouth Rail Campaign has organised a conference to help keep up the pressure to reinstate the rail link.

The conference will bring together MSPs, MPs, councillors , rail experts and campaigners to update on the progress of the campaign and to discuss what steps can be taken to ensure the rail link is reinstated.

Confirmed speakers at the event include rail expert David Shires and Borders Rail campaigner David Parker.

The second part of the conference will be a workshop, giving people a chance to share their views on how to get the Scottish Government to back the scheme.

LMRC chair Eugene Clarke commented: “Progress has stumbled a bit despite the optimism last year when the Transport Minister seemed to have given the go ahead for the next step.

“It is disappointing to note that five months later Transport Scotland have still not agreed the remit for the next set of consultants.

“We hope the conference will reinvigorate the campaign and ensure the Scottish Government does not lose sight of what is a vital project in the regeneration of the Levenmouth community.”

The campaign group says it hopes that both Transport Scotland and Fife Council will attend to deliver presentations.

The conference will take place at the Fife Renewables Innovation Centre on April 27, between 11am-2pm.
