Councillors at today’s (Wednesday) Levenmouth area committee meeting will be asked to agree to proposals for an £80,000 safety plan for the A915 Standing Stane Road.

Elected members will discuss the report, which looks to implement a Route Accident ReductionPlan (RARP) for the main route between Kirkcaldy and Levenmouth, with the aim of reducing accidents in line with Scottish Govenrment targets for the area.

Included in the plan are proposals to upgrade signing and junction visibility at the Checkbar Road junction and entrance to Wellsgreen, a reduced speed limit of 40mph between Percival Road and Cameron Roundabout, and refreshed lining and hazard warning signs along the entire route.

The RARP process has involved an in-depth review of the route, the recorded accidents (72 between 2011-2013), the currentcondition of the road including signs/lines and possible off road objects that couldbe struck by vehicles leaving the carriageway.

The Standing Stane is the first route in Fife which has been subject to a RARP following route analysis on all non- trunk A and B roads in Fife.
