Leven rail link: bridge parapets to be raised to accommodate new rail line

Its focus is a metal bridge over the railway which is also a designated core path.
In a planning statement, Network Rail said: “The existing parapets comprise metal girders. The parapets are approximately 1.4 metres high and as such are non-compliant with electrification standards.
“It is proposed to extend the height of the existing bridge parapets by 500mm to ensure full compliance with electrification standards. These works are required to facilitate the reopening of the Leven Branch Line as part of the Levenmouth Re-connected project, which will see the railway reopened as a twin-track electrified line under this overbridge.
The application falls under permitted development rights for the massive transport project which is scheduled to be completed next year.
