A SCHEME which will see £1.4 million of improvements and repair to Dunfermline's roads and pavements have been given the green light.

Included as priorities for Fife Council's transportation department is resurfacing work on the A994 between Crossford and Cairneyhill - which will cost £504,160 - and Halbeath Road from Cherrybank to the railway bridge, which is estimated to cost £244,560.

Footpath improvements will also be carried out on Halbeath Road, on a stretch from Dalcross Way to Strathmore Drive, which will form a £127,845 work project.

Area committee convener, Councillor James Calder, was pleased to see the work approved.

“Residents of Dunfermline have told us how important it is to get our roads and footpaths repaired and we’re spending more that £1.4m doing just that," he said.

"This programme of works will improve the journeys of road users and pedestrians across the area.”
