Council making progress on road repairs

Councillor Altany CraikFife Council is making progress on the backlog of road repairs that built up over the pandemic but there is still a lot of work to do.

Since April this year over 3,600 repairs have been carried out on the Kingdom's roads which includes approximately 1000 defects, outstanding from last year 2021/22. Extra staff have been brought in to help make sure the backlog is being tackled as quickly as possible.

And improvements are being made to IT systems to improve efficiency and response times for customers.

Fife Council's roads spokesperson Cllr Altany Craik welcomed the progress: "We've specifically targeted an extra £6 million to catch up on road repairs this year and we're continuing to make good progress. However we know that there's still a lot of work to do and we're committed to continually improving Fife's roads.

"Winter is approaching and these months can be challenging for the roads service. We'll continue to identify any issues as quickly as possible and keep roads safe for everyone travelling."
