Work is due to begin next week on a five-month project to replace the bridge over the Scoonie Burn at Maitland Street, Leven.

Maitland Street will be closed at the Scoonie Burn crossing for the duration of the works. Access will be maintained for residents and emergency services. A diversion route will be in place, via Maitland Street, Scoonie Street, Church Road and Carberry Road .

Contractors Noel Regan and Sons are due to start work on Monday, and the project is expected to finish in October.

Fife Council is apologising for any inconvenience caused by the works. The plan is part of its programme of ‘bridge replacement and strengthening’ approved by the environment, enterprise & transportation committee.
