Road closures as major roadworks planned for Dunfermline

Road closures and temporary traffic lights will be in place for 16 weeks while roadworks take place in Dunfermline city centre.

Resurfacing and signal upgrades will affect the crossroads at Elgin Street and Moodie Street as well as the Bothwell Gardens roundabout from June 17.

They'll cost £650,000.

The work at Bothwell Gardens will be done in three phases, starting with a road closure on Woodmill Street.

To manage the traffic flow, there will be four-way temporary traffic lights, which will be manually controlled during peak events.  

Elgin Street and Moodie Street crossroads will also be controlled with 4-way traffic management.

A diversion is in place.

Cllr Altany Craik, Fife Council's roads spokesperson said: “We maintain over 2,400km of roads in Fife and we’re spending millions each year repairing and improving them.

“Our road network is vital to support economic development, inward investment, tourism, leisure and travel to work. Almost everyone in Fife uses our roads daily, which is why this type of maintenance work is so essential.

“Roadworks in Dunfermline city centre will cause delays - please give yourself extra journey time. We apologise for any inconvenience; your patience is greatly appreciated.”

Bus services will also be affected but people still able to access Dunfermline Train Station's car park.

Access will be kept for emergency services, businesses and residents.
