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

“Almost everyone in Fife uses our roads on a daily basis, which is why this type of maintenance work is so essential.”

The council plans to use two-way temporary traffic lights to control traffic during phases one and two of the work.

But, phase three needs a full road closure between Newliston Drive and Bennochy Road.

Bus services will also be hit by the work.
