COUNCILLORS have approved funding for four road improvement projects in Kirkcaldy during 2012/13.
A report, which went before yesterday’s (Wednesday) Kirkcaldy Area Committee, sought the go-ahead for £280,000 and a further £1m which will be invested in the town’s roads over the next four years.
The Kirkcaldy roads lined up for improvement are: High Street, Port Brae - The Path (£100,000 investment); B925 Kirkcaldy - Beverkae (additional investment £100,000); Dalmahoy Crescent (additional funding £40,000) and Turnberry Drive (additional funding £40,000). The move follows approval at the Council budget meeting in February for an additional £9m of capital funding for Fife road improvements. Dr Bob McLellan, head of transportation, said: “This extra funding will allow us to reverse some of the detrimental effects caused by the last two winters. We will reduce the need for short term patching, thereby improving the road conditions in Kirkcaldy.”
