A temporary local traffic diversion will be in place from Monday until Friday (August 19).

Access for emergency services will be maintained, but are required to follow the diversion routes during the road closure.

Access for residents and business will be maintained where practicable, at the discretion of the contractor during the works.

These dates are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, e.g. poor weather, or works progressing ahead of programme.

A Fife Council spokesman said: “Any inconvenience and delay caused by these essential works is regretted, however, as far as possible, this will be kept to a minimum. Your patience and co-operation is greatly appreciated.”
