Transportation Services is responsible for inspecting reported road defects and potholes and arranging any necessary repairs on the non-trunk, adopted roads in Fife.

A yearly assessment of road pavement condition is carried out and the results used to compile a three year programme of works.

You can notify us of any road problems by using our online Road Reporting Form.

The following types of faults can also be reported by telephoning our contact centre:

  • Grit bins
  • Gullies
  • Potholes and uneven slabs
  • Safety barriers and pedestrian guardrails

Please note that the responsibility for the maintenance of the trunk road network, for example M90, A823M, A92, A977, currently lies with BEAR Scotland Ltd (Tel 0800 587 1107).  The A985 is the responsibility of Amey (tel 0800 042 0188).

Roadworks

Under the New Roads & Street Works Act 1991 we are responsible for co-ordinating all utility work (electricity, gas, telephone companies)  with our own roadworks, to minimise congestion, delays and inconvenience.

We prepare weekly programmes identifying road works within each operational are,  as well as a Fife wide programme on strategic and traffic sensitive Roads.  This can be found in the publications section of the page.

If you need to apply for a temporary road closure for roadworks purposes or for an event of some sort, you will need to discuss your requirements with the roads management officer for that area. They will help you complete the correct application form. Application forms and guidance notes can be accessed from the publications section on this page.

  • North Fife (Freuchie to St. Andrews)
  • Mid Fife (Cardenden to Glenrothes)
  • South Fife (Kincardine to Lochgelly)

Abnormal Loads

If you are planning on moving an abnormal load, exceeding 40 tonnes or more, on the roads of Fife then notify the structural services team to discuss the route. The address is below. Wide loads may also require discussion with the local roads network management team. Police Scotland will assess whether the load will need escorted to ensure the safety of the public. Their email address is below.
