A STRETCH of road in Inverkeithing will close for three weeks later this month to allow roadworks to take place.

Deas Road will shut from the junction of Roods Road to the junction of Clark Road from midnight on February 20 until midnight on Friday, March 10.

Fife Council say the closure will allow footway resurfacing works to be carried out safely.

An alternative route for through traffic will be set up via Roods Road, Hill Street and Hillfield Road.
