Sections of major Fife road to be single-file for four months

Sections of a major Fife road will be reduced to single-file for four months as part of a project to replace electricity cables in Levenmouth.

Essential work started in Leven today (Monday) to replace electricity cables in part of the network that’s more than 75 years old.

The works will affect the A915 Windygates Road, Kennoway Road and areas of The Broom housing scheme in Leven, beginning along the front of the Diageo plant.

For the first four months, sections of the A915 will be reduced to single-file, which could result in travel delays at peak times, and traffic management is being put in place to support this.

The works are scheduled to be fully completed by November.

A Scottish Power spokesperson said: “The works are necessary to ensure we can continue to maintain electricity supply and keep the lights on for business and domestic customers alike in the local area.

“We’ve worked hard to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum and to ensure how the teams work is in line with the current government guidance.

“We will also be displaying signage explaining what we are doing is essential to maintaining the electricity supply – a lifeline for the country that is more important than ever at the moment. After all, you only have to think about what would happen if the power went off to appreciate why what we’re doing provides such an essential service.

“To ensure we can maintain social distancing measures while completing these essential works, we would ask people not to approach our teams, but to direct any queries to our customer service team on 0330 1010 260.”

The work has been welcomed by local councillor, Colin Davidson.

“I welcome the investment in infrastructure that will allow Levenmouth to expand,” he said.

“We need the cables in the ground in order to allow industry to expand. It’s better to do it now.”
