Essential underground maintenance required at Haugh Park, Cupar

Sections of the slabbed footpath in Cupar’s Haugh Park have been closed off as a safety measure following a recent inspection of the culvert underneath the affected area in the park.

The Lady Burn is culverted from the ‘Fluthers’ roundabout to the River Eden outfall at the south side of the park. A recent structural inspection of a section of culvert beneath the park highlighted structural instability.

Scott Clelland, Service Manager for Parks, Streets & Open Spaces explained: “For public safety, we immediately fenced off a small section of footpath above the affected area, near to the bandstand. A temporary footpath is being formed to offer walkers a diverted route. With measures in place to protect the public, we can now carry out a full investigation of the structure and decide on a long-term solution.”
