The Cluny road will be closed for four weeks

Motorists face diversions from next week on the Cluny road as essential carriageway works are carried out.

Fife Council’s transportation and environmental services team will be resurfacing the B981 from Monday.

In order for the work to be completed safely a road closure is required for the duration.

It will be shut from the mini roundabout at the junction of the B922 and B981 in Cluny to the junction at the A92 Chapel Interchange.

The works are expected to be completed by the evening of Friday, April 18.

A number of bus services will be affected.

Service 32/33/34 will omit Cardenden and operate via Dundonald and the A92.

To allow continued access for the residents of Cardenden, a free shuttlebus will operate between Cardenden and Bowhill to allow connections to be made with local buses.

Access for emergency services will also be maintained at all times.

Residents and businesses will get in and out at the discretion of the contractor.

A spokesman for the Council said: “We apologise for any inconvenience and delay caused by these essential works.

‘‘We will try to keep disturbance to a minimum.

“Your patience and co-operation during this time is greatly appreciated.”

Transport Scotland will also be working on parts of the A92 over the coming weeks.

As part of a £500,000 investment works will take place on the trunk road from Westerton to Lochgelly and from Fordell to Cowdenbeath.

The work on the northbound Westerton to Lochgelly section will start today (Thursday) for seven nights, excluding Saturday.

A convoy system will be in operation with a 10mph speed limit between 7.30 p.m. and 6.30 a.m.

During certain phases the northbound off-slip at Lochgelly will be closed and a diversion will be in place along the A92 to the Chapel Interchange and return via the southbound off-slip.

Work northbound between Fordell and Cowdenbeath will get underway on Friday, March 28 for three days.
