Just days after roadworks on Cupar’s South Road were completed, Fife Council is set to tear the road up again.

For three weeks from tonight (March 29) traffic lights will once again control traffic on the road while the council undertakes a series of improvements.

That includes carriageway resurfacing, widening the footway outside the Golf Tavern, and putting signals on the existing crossing outside Tesco.

Kevin Smith, consultant engineer, said: “We’ve taken the decision to co-ordinate three different projects at the same time for these works, to limit repeated visits to this area over the coming months. We also brought forward the recent gas works to avoid excavations into our new surfacing.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and delay caused by these works and we’ll try to keep disturbance to a minimum. Your patience and co-operation during this time is greatly appreciated.”

A spokesman for Fife Council added that it had not been feasible to dovetail the gas main replacement and the new works, explaining that resurfacing is a relatively quick process in relation to the gas works, which required deeper localised excavations to access the pipe network.
