AN URGENT inspection of a Cowdenbeath road littered with potholes was set to be addressed by Fife Council.

Drivers had reported a number of problems on Bridge Street to councillor Darren Watt and the local authority is taking action.

Roads spokesperson Cllr Altany Craik told the Times that since the beginning of 2022, a total of 722 potholes were identified as needing attention in the Cowdenbeath area.

Of them, 650 have been repaired with other defects identified.

Cllr Craik said: “There are over 2,500km of roads in Fife and we work hard to maintain all of this and keep our roads in a safe condition.

“We have to work on a priority basis, concentrating on the areas in poorest condition first and then moving on to other areas.

“Since the beginning of last year our inspection team identified 722 potholes that needed attention in the Cowdenbeath area. 650 have been repaired and we are continuing to work through defects identified during ongoing safety inspections and ad-hoc enquiries.

"An urgent inspection is being organised at Bridge Street and we'll make sure any issues are dealt with as quickly as possible."
