MORE THAN 600 potholes have been repaired in Dunfermline since the start of the year.

The figures were confirmed by Fife Council after concerns were raised by one West Fifer about the state of the roads in the city.

Press reader Ian Sharp said many road surfaces were in desperate need of repair.

"What really annoys me is the Glen Bridge – they have done St Margaret's Street but the Glen Bridge has never been mended," he said.

"The City car park is an absolute mess and Wedderburn Street is bad as well."

Sara Wilson, lead consultant with Fife Council's transportation services, said work was ongoing to address problem areas.

"There are over 2,500km of roads in Fife and we work hard to maintain all of this and keep our roads in a safe condition," she said.

“We have to work on a priority basis, concentrating on the areas in poorest condition first and then moving on to other areas.

“Since the beginning of the year, our inspection team identified 629 potholes that needed attention in the Dunfermline area. A total of 641 have been repaired and we are continuing to work through defects identified during ongoing safety inspections and ad-hoc enquiries.”
