Council chiefs pledge to spend £10million on Fife’s roads

Fife Council chiefs have approved an additional investment for roads maintenance projects, increasing the Fife wide capital investment to £10million in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

 

The additional funding will be used to improve:

  • urban named roads,
  • footways in housing precincts,
  • rural primary routes, and
  • the condition of all roads.

David Brown, Service Manager for Network Management said: “We recognise the need to maintain and improve roads across Fife and this additional investment will be put to good use.

“Area Transportation Works Programmes for 2017/18 have been approved by all seven Area Committees costing approximately £5.7million. The increased funding allows these projects to progress and for additional sites to be identified and included.”

He added: “Over the next few weeks we’ll be working with elected members to identify any new locations that should be added to our roads maintenance programme.”
