Cowdenbeath Area Committee heard that the largest spend is £230,000 on the stretch of the B981 between Cardenden and Cluny which would be getting a full resurfacing.

Meanwhile Woodend Road in Cardenden will get a full length resurfacing at a cost of £170,000 and also in line for projects are North Street, in Lochgelly, and Catherine Terrace in Crosshill.
