TRAFFIC disruption is expected in Dunfermline town centre as a busy road faces more than a week of work.

Starting on Monday next week, July 26, the town's Appin Crescent will be made one-way for eight days as carriageway resurfacing is carried out.

Only traffic heading west to east will be allowed access through the works.

Fife Council has discussed the plans with Stagecoach and have agreed this will cause the "least disruption to the bus services".

Local access up to Garvock Hill will be maintained for residents, shops and businesses.

Town-centre traffic will be diverted at Linburn Road and brought along Aberdour Road, Hospital Hill and St Margaret’s Drive.

Localised side road closures will be in place for Garvock Hill (junction with Appin Crescent) a local diversion will be put in place at Transy Grove, Couston Street and Park Place.

Due to access issues with these being the only access points, works will be phased to ensure that Couston Street or Park Place will be open for residents and businesses during the works.

Parking will be suspended on Appin Crescent throughout the roadworks.

The contractors' working hours will be from 7.30am to 7.30pm.

Residents and local businesses will receive letters at least two weeks prior to the works starting, and information boards will be put in place throughout Dunfermline to warn road users.
