To ask the Scottish Government when a pedestrian crossing will be put in place at Balbirnie on the A92, north of Cadham.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 3 January 2018
The Scottish Government recognises the concerns of the local community following the tragic death of Logan Carrie in 2015 on the A92 north of Glenrothes and is committed to improving crossing provision on the route. We have invested over £35.1 million on the A92 since 2007 to ensure it continues to operate safely and efficiently. We have also been evaluating potential measures, which have highlighted a number of issues and we are considering alternatives which may be more appropriate for this location.
We have recently constructed a new footpath alongside part of the A92 and reduced the speed limit in this area.
As previously discussed with community representatives, we will meet them again early in the new year to discuss our progress on the A92 around Glenrothes and Freuchie.
