Tentsmuir car park and access road to close for one week
Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) is asking visitors to avoid Tentsmuir Forest car park towards the end of March.
The access road to the car park will be closed, week commencing Monday 21 March, to allow FLS to carry out a general repair of the road.
Robin Lofthouse, FLS Area Visitor Services Manager, said;
“The road has been in need of some attention for a while and with the our teams all focused on the clear-up work after the recent storms, we’re taking the opportunity to also tackle this job.
“We have a civil engineering team currently working to repair roadside potholes along the route. The road is currently still passable but once this stage of the work is complete, we’ll be looking to deal with the potholes in the road itself.
“Unfortunately, that means we will have to close the road to visitors as high volumes of traffic make it difficult for our contractors to work efficiently. However, we will make sure that local residents will still be able to leave and return to their properties.
“Roadside parking is not an option and will only result in congestion, disruption to our work and could potentially block access for emergency services.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience but would also ask that visitors co-operate and allow us to get the job completed as quickly as we can so we can re-open the road.”
FLS hopes to have the road re-opened by Saturday 26 March.
