A burst water main that caused disruption to water supplies in parts of Kirkcaldy has been repaired.

Scottish Water sent engineers to the site of the burst pipe near Kinglassie.

The issue affected supplies in the KY2 postcode area, which covers northern and western parts of the town.

Scottish Water says residents in the area should soon have their water supply fully restored.

The B922 was closed between Strathore Road and the B921 Kinglassie Road while repairs were carried out.

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “A repair to a burst water main on the B921 in Kinglassie has been successfully repaired.

“Our team worked as quickly as possible to complete the repair and all customers should soon have their water supply fully restored.

“Some may experience low pressure or discoloured water for a short period and they should run their cold water kitchen tap gently until it runs clear.

“We would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding while we worked to complete repairs and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
