Transport Minister Humza Yousaf has agreed to visit the A92 next month, following repeated calls from campaigners.

The minister will visit the road on February 27, after promising to visit during a meeting at the Scottish Parliament last March.

MSP Jenny Gilruth, who secured the visit, commented: “I look forward to welcoming the minister to my constituency on February 27. North Glenrothes Community Council should be rightly commended for keeping road safety on the A92 in the public eye.

“Just before Christmas I took part in walking the ‘five hazards’ along with the community council.

“As someone who uses that road regularly I know all too well of the dangers on that section of the A92. I am delighted the Transport Minister is now set to visit next month; it’s important he witnesses these issues at first hand. I am sure the Minister will have his own views which will be discussed at length during the visit with local members of the community.”

Ron Page, chair of the community council, welcomed the news, saying: “We are delighted at long last to hear that the Minister has agreed to a site visit to see for himself the issues faced at the ‘five hazards’ on the A92.”

The minister last visited in October 2016.
