A92 crossing plans

A signalised pedestrian crossing will be installed near Balbirnie Mains, as part of further improvements on the A92.

Transport Scotland carried out an extensive investigation into potential crossing options following the death of nine-year-old Logan Carrie, who was killed in a road accident at this location.

Detailed design work for the traffic signal controlled crossing is underway, with a view to having it in place before the end of the financial year.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said:,

“I previously visited this site and met with Logan’s family. I promised them that my officials would develop a practical solution to improve pedestrian access at this point on the A92 to help prevent a repeat of these tragic circumstances.

“The proposed crossing is the result of that work. We will also continue to engage with Fife Council and other stakeholders to ensure the crossing is linked to the surrounding path network.

“I also recently met stakeholders regarding their concerns at Cadham and Balfarg junctions. Transport Scotland has outlined a series of potential options for these locations, and these will be assessed over the course of the summer.”
