Roadworks on A915 in Leven
Archived news: published on Tuesday 12 Feb 2019 by Fife Council
In February Fife Council will invest £165,000 improving the road network in Leven.
We’ll be carrying out carriageway resurfacing on the A915 Scoonie Brae and Largo Road, Leven from Monday 25 February 2019 for 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 and we are spending nearly £8 million this year repairing and improving them.
“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.”
The works will be carried out in two phases:
- Phase 1 – Largo Road, Leven
- Phase 2 – Scoonie Brae, Leven
During phase 1 traffic will be controlled by temporary traffic signals and the use of a convoy vehicle. To help minimise delays, the temporary traffic signals will be manually controlled by traffic marshalls between the hours 7:30am and 7:00pm. Scoonie Brae will be closed the weekends of 2/3rd March and 9/10th March, with a signed diversion route in place.
Electronic advance warning signs will be erected before the works start to advise motorists using this route.
There will be access for emergency services but access for residents and businesses will be at the discretion of the contractor.
Bus services will be affected by these works and during phase 2 will be diverted. For more information contact Stagecoach on (01592) 645680 or visit www.stagecoachbus.com
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.”
