WORK that was due to start on the extension of Rosyth skatepark could be delayed.

The project has been halted due to problems with access to the town's Public Park and there is now uncertainty when building will begin.

The Take a Pride in Rosyth Group, who have been leading the project, had announced previously that construction should be starting this week.

Contractors are now trying to come up with solutions on how they can access a park which has an arched entrance.

Martin Rodgers, secretary of the group, said: "We are not certain when it is going ahead.

"It could still be this week or next week or it might be shunted back until 2021 given the time of year.

"At the moment, it's a question of how to get access to the park."

The group has been working to make the facility bigger and more inclusive since 2018.

It funded the original skatepark back in 2011 and there have been calls to make it better since.

The group has also helped provide the adult gym and new boating pond.

Plans showing what the skatepark would look like were revealed in May and after feedback this led to some alterations to the design.

The project has been developed and is funded by the Take a Pride in Rosyth Group with a substantial grant from the Fife Environment Trust towards an expected cost of £70,000.
