East Fife Regional Road
A road proposed in the 1960s and eventually built (on a different line) in the 1980s in the county of Fife in Scotland. It is a dual carriageway with grade separated junctions which connects the towns of Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes and is part of the A92. There are currently no road signs referring to the East Fife Regional Road, although while it was being constructed there were signs carrying this name.
It was originally intended that the EFRR be built to the south of its current alignment, connecting to the M90 motorway at junction 2. In the end it was built further north, connecting to the M90 at junction 3, terminating on a roundabout. Direct slips were later added to connect to and from A90 to the south (M90 junction 2a).
A West Fife Regional Road was also planned, linking Dunfermline with towns to the west and ultimately onward to Stirling. The WFRR was never built, but was still being considered for construction as late as the mid-1990s. Local campaigners are still pressing for the WFRR section between the M90 and the A985 to be completed. This section is known as the Rosyth Bypass and would relieve the town of Rosyth of a considerable amount of through traffic.
