Councillor Altany Craik, convener of economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation said: “We maintain over 2400 km of roads in Fife and we spend millions each year repairing and improving them.

“Our road network is vital to support economic development, inward investment, tourism, leisure and travel to work. Almost everyone in Fife uses our roads on a daily basis, which is why this type of maintenance work is so essential.”

Access will be maintained for emergency services and pedestrians.

Cllr Craik added: “We apologise for any inconvenience and delay caused by these essential works, and we will try to keep any disturbance to a minimum. Your patience and co-operation during this time is greatly appreciated.”
