MORE than £600,000 is about to be spent on road resurfacing, better footpaths and new street lights in Dunfermline.

Councillors were told at Tuesday's City of Dunfermline area committee that "good progress" was being made on the 2019-20 programme of improvements.

Projects that are about to get under way include £176,000 to resurface Carnock Road – the stretch between Milesmark Court and Craigluscar Road – and £160,000 to resurface Maitland Street.

And £275,000 will be spent on replacing footways and street lights on Keir Hardie Terrace, Maitland Street and Johnston Crescent.

In addition, there's more than £100,000 in the budget for traffic management and safety, including improvements to the zebra crossings on East Port, a puffin crossing on Aberdour Road, a new drop-off layby on Pittsburgh Road next to the Spar shop, traffic-calming on Allan Crescent and crash investigation and prevention works throughout the town.

Still to be worked into the timetable are resurfacing works at Dewar Street, Rolland Street and Chamberfield Road, and street light and footway improvements at Standing Stone Walk, Rolland Street, part of Johnston Crescent and the A994 Dunfermline to Urquhart Cut road.
