A Fife MSP has welcomed a re-assurance over the safety of a footbridge at a rail station.

Annabelle Ewing, who represents Cowdenbeath, had raised concerns over the state of the bridge at Dalgety Bay station. She cited low level corrosion to the structure and anti-slip coating - both of which can be attributed to the use of de-icing salts in winter.

She welcomed Network Rail’s assurance the footbridge was perfectly safe, adding: “Public safety has to be the number one priority, but it is also important to recognise that aesthetics matter too and in its current condition the bridge is far from pleasing to the eye.

“This has been acknowledged and so I also welcome the further commitment I have received that they will see what can be achieved in addressing the issue of the bridge’s appearance. I will be updated as to progress. This is something on which I will continue to keep a close eye.”
