Councillors have backed a move to extend the part-time 20mph zone at a Kirkcaldy school - and add a new crossing.

The moves were taken in the interests of safety.

Kirkcaldy area committee approved a report from officers which will a new crossing, and the 20mph zone extended at key times - morning, lunch and late afternoon when pupils are coming in and out of Kirkcaldy High School on Dunnikier Way.

The 20mph zone will be extended by approximately 77 metres to just east of the Dunnikier House Hotel access road - that will also cover school buses which use the junction which leads to the hotel at the top of the park.

Phil Clarke, lead officer, told the committee that the headteacher, Derek Allan, was keen to see the measures in place.

He added: “We need to extend the 20mph zone - it is a minor amendment.”

Councillors approved the changes.
