The title in the article is a bit click-baity, as it transpires it is a request for an Environmental Impact Assessment, Network Rail have acutaly submitted.


THE RE-OPENING of a rail line between Alloa and Longannet could be a step closer with the submission of a planning application.


Network Rail have submitted a request for an Environmental Impact Assessment for a proposed railway station and ancillary development at land to the south of Broomknowe, Kincardine.


This could mean hopes for a long-awaited link between Dunfermline and Alloa could be on track.
A Network Rail spokesperson said: "We are currently looking at a range of options for enhancing the line between Alloa and Longannet."
Back in September last year, Network Rail announced that they were to start the "next phase" of development work between Alloa and Longannet which could see the reinstatement of passenger services between Clackmannanshire and Fife.
They said that engineers would be carrying out survey work and site and geological investigations to gain information for the project which could enhance and electrify the former freight line and see the introduction of three new stations at Clackmannan, Kincardine and Longannet.

Is the long term idea for a direct Dunfermline to Glasgow electrified route?

I’d like to see them consider the case for a station at Cambus while they’re looking at an extension.

My understanding is that there was a decent business case for serving Cambus / Tullibody but the dwell time at Alloa couldn’t support 2 extra stops.

Once you’re extending to Kincardine that calculation becomes different.
