During May, Fife Council will invest £200,000 improving the road network in Burntisland.


We’ll be carrying out carriageway resurfacing on A921 from west of Bendameer Road to Bendameer Lodge. Work will start on Monday 13 May for up to three weeks.

Cllr Altany Craik, Convener of Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning and Transportation Committee said: “We maintain over 2,400 km of roads in Fife. 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.”

To carry out these works safely the road will be closed from Monday 13 May until complete. A sign posted diversion will be in place directing traffic via the A907 Cowdenbeath Road, the B9157 and Mill Farm Road, Aberdour. There’s a separate diversion route for high sided vehicles via Crossgates and Beverkae roundabout.

Access for emergency services and pedestrians will be maintained at all times.

Bus services will be disrupted during these works:

  • No 7 - Dunfermline/Kirkcaldy in both directions
    Burntisland - Passengers should board at Kirkton Road, Church Street or Dollar Road. The service will not operate on Colinswell Road or Bendameer Road. 
    Aberdour - A bus replacement service between Aberdour Rail Station and Pentland Rise, Dalgety Bay will be operating taking passengers in Aberdour to access service No 7 in both directions.
    Notices will be placed at all affected bus stops, directing passengers to the nearest working bus stop.
  • BW6 School Bus - Aberdour/Kirkcaldy in both directions
    There is one school bus service leaving Aberdour at 0817. This bus will be allowed through the closure going to Kirkcaldy in the morning but will follow the diversion route on the return from Kirkcaldy to Aberdour in the afternoon.

Cllr Craik concluded: “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.”
