Cluny road to get speedbumps

A section of the road leading up to the mini-roundabout near the A92 slip road will have three speed bumps installed.

Local residents have raised concerns that the section of the road leading to the mini-roundabout coming from Glenrothes saw cars exceeding the 30mph speed limit.

A report found that 80% of drivers are exceeding the 30mph limit, with almost 20% of drivers exceeding 40mph. More than 100 vehicles are travelling in excess of 50mph each day.

Councillors at the Cowdenbeath area committee agreed to implement the speed bumps.

Convener of the committee Linda Erskine said: “This is the main route between Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes west and the traffic is always bad. People have been desperately needing this, and I’m surprised there hasn’t been more accidents in this area. It’s been a long time coming and I’m glad to see it and the residents are too.”
