RESURFACING work costing more than £570,000 was carried out on potholed and damaged roads in South West Fife last year.

Councillors were told that, despite jobs being delayed by the pandemic, 10 carriageway schemes were completed in Rosyth, Saline, Oakley, Carnock, North Queensferry and Torryburn in 2020-21.

Three projects, costing around £200,000, were put off until this year.

One scheme in Culross, at Kirk Street/Tanhouse Brae, was postponed because a flood study is required, while resurfacing jobs at Preston Crescent in Inverkeithing and on the B914 between Saline and Dunnygask House, were also delayed to 2021-22.

A report at the South and West Fife area committee said: "Despite the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions, which meant works were not able to commence on site until July 2020, good progress was made with the delivery of the 2020-21 area roads programme."

Three projects to improve footpaths, at McGrigor Road and Albert Street in Rosyth and at Hawthorn Bank in Carnock, were completed at a cost of just over £200,000.

And lighting improvements costing £135,000 were carried out at Park Road West and Camdean Crescent in Rosyth and Pentland Rise in Dalgety Bay.

Three road safety and traffic management schemes, for vehicle-activated signs at Moray Way North in Dalgety Bay, traffic light upgrades at Main Street in Carnock and a replacement pedestrian crossing at High Street, Inverkeithing, costing £122,000, were postponed until this financial year.
