The end is now in sight for the major upgrading of Kirkcaldy sea wall as work is expected to be completed in early December.

Bob McLellan, Fife Council’s head of transportation and environmental services, said: “It’s great we’re at the final stages of this project, within a couple of weeks work will be finished.

“The Council has invested £9million upgrading Kirkcaldy Sea Wall, ensuring its longevity and its ability to protect the Promenade and the properties along it.

“I would like to thank the residents of Kirkcaldy for their patience, as these works have been on-going since July last year.

“I am positive that people will be delighted with the finished result, as it will be a more attractive place for local people and visitors to enjoy.”

Will Davies, VolkerStevin site agent, also thanked the community for its patience and added: “We are delighted to be handing back a sea front that everyone involved in the scheme can be proud of.”

Cllr Neil Crooks, chairman of Kirkcaldy Area Committee, said: “We’re finally here; it’s been a long time in the making.

“The finished sea wall and promenade will really enhance Kirkcaldy for both residents and visitors.”
