Great news for Kincardine and Fife with this morning's announcement (14/11/2018) in the press, which will bring over 1,000 jobs to Kincardine. Extracts from the press 14th November 2018 Jobs adjacent to Forthview development Train factory to bring 1,000 jobs to Longannet in Fife At least 1,000 jobs will be created at a train-building factory to be built at Longannet in Fife, Spanish firm Talgo announced today. Talgo said it had been chosen because of its good sea, rail and road connections, and availability of skilled workers. Components may be brought in by ship, while the firm said it would be keen to see further rail electrification to enable newly-built trains to run direct from the factory. Talgo plans to build a range of trains and has been shortlisted for the high-speed trains contract for the HS2 line due to open between London and northern England in 2026 That suggests a possible upgrading of the single-track line past Longannet between Alloa and Dunfermline which was previously used by coal trains going to the power station. Paul Lewis, managing director of Scottish Government agency Scottish Development International, said the plans offered considerable benefits. He said: With our public and private sector partners, we've worked intensively for many months to deliver the optimum proposal and to secure Scotland and Fife as the preferred location for Talgo's investment, so this announcement today is great news.

Kincardine town itself has a population of c. 4,000 residents but has all major motorway/transportation links to Glasgow &Edinburgh and is centrally and strategically located for all compass points. In addition to the Kincardine bridge the new Clackmannanshire Bridge 1km up stream was constructed over the Firth of Forth in 2008/9 to allow quick access to the M80 and M9 Motorways linking the 2 major cities of Glasgow &Edinburgh to the kingdom of Fife and the North of Scotland, together with the larger towns of Stirling, Falkirk and Dundee. The site will therefore attract residents who will commute to and from these towns/cities with easy transport links. The completion of the new Forth Crossing will make travel time to Edinburgh within 35 minutes of Kincardine. Kex Holdings Ltd own the whole of the project site which is part of Inch Farm with the site extending to 50.82 GDA (20.56 ha) or thereby as shown and delineated on the attached site Lot plan The site extends to 43.75 NDA including the fronted spine road but excludes open space, landscaping, community centre and residential care home and has a planning permission in principle with reserved matters under reference number 17/02330/PPP and is currently included in the new Fife LDP adopted October 2017.
