Keil Burn Footbridge Repaired

L-R: Dominique Robertson (Fife Council); Matt Allan (vice chair LACC); Cllr Ken Caldwell; Steve Wood (past secretary LACC)

Thanks to a year-long campaign for repairs, by the local community and LACC, on 22nd February 2019, the Keil Burn Bridge was re-opened.

Steve Wood put in a tremendous amount of work to successfully apply to Fife Environment Trust and Levenmouth Area Committee for funding and assistance and combined with funding from LACC and David Chrichton, Fife Council were able to proceed to organise the removal of the old bridge and co-ordinate the works.

Peter Aitken, Chair of Largo Area Community Council said: “I’m delighted to see this project completed for the benefit of our community. I would especially like to thank Steve Wood our immediate past secretary for all of his hard work on the grant application, the army engineers from Leuchars for their assistance and the councillors and officials of Fife Council for their support to the community.”

Work will continue, to carry out some work on the approaches to the bridge.
