PART of the road between Aberdour and Burntisland will be closed for up to three weeks.

Stagecoach bus services will also be diverted due to £200,000 of resurfacing work on the A921.

Fife Council will start the roadworks on Monday May 13 and the stretch to be improved is from west of Bendameer Road, Burntisland, to Bendameer Cottage.

Councillor Altany Craik, convener of the Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning and Transportation Committee, said:“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.”

To carry out the works safely the road will be closed from Monday until completion.

A diversion will be in place directing traffic via the A909 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.

Cllr Craik added: "“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.”

Throughout the works, a bus replacement service between Aberdour Railway Station and Pentland Rise, Dalgety Bay, will take passengers in Aberdour to access Stagecoach's No 7 service in both directions.

There is one BW6 school bus service leaving Aberdour at 8.17am.

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.
