Bothwell Gardens roundabout roadworks - phase two starts

On Monday 8 July, at Bothwell Gardens roundabout, Dunfermline, roadworks will move on to phase two.

The 4-way temporary traffic lights will reduce to 3-way and Woodmill Street will be closed to through traffic. The traffic management layout will be changed during the day on Sunday 7 July.

Access will be maintained to Woodmill Street and Woodmill Street car park but no traffic will be able to access Bothwell Gardens roundabout from Woodmill Street. A signed diversion will be in place during phase two - see map below.

Phase two roadworks will take three weeks to complete. Phase three will start on Sunday 28 July.

Mark Dewar, service manager for roads and lighting contracts, said: “We thank Dunfermline’s road users for their continued patience and cooperation as we carry out these essential upgrades. We are working hard getting Dunfermline ready for developments happening in and around the city over the next few years.

"We're sorry for the disruption on Tuesday afternoon when all lights were red - this was to allow safe working in an area that extended just beyond the working zone. This was a one time incident and all works will remain within the traffic managed area.

"We’re continuing to work with the contractor to minimise delays, where we can. If possible, we ask people to consider alternative routes and to give themselves extra time for their journeys.”

Please be aware all businesses in the area are open as usual.
