Details of Speed Limit and any changes last 9 years at A977 at Drum

We're waiting for Paul Ryan to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Fife Council,

Under FOISA, regarding the stretch of the A977 at Drum between Yetts O' Muckhart turn off / speed limit repeater sign and 300m north of this point

The speed limit on this section of road has perhaps changed. In 2009 the limit at the point just north of this junction was NSL (60mph), It is now not clear what the speed limit is.

Can you provide me detail if this was changed and reduced to 40mph

If it was not changed please advise me of the speed limit for this section

If it was changed :

Please provide me with all information you hold regarding this change. At the minimum, I would expect this to contain the following, but all information is requested:

1. The report on 'current' (at the time) speed levels before the decision was made to change it. National guidance suggests that passive speed restrictions are only effective in reducing speed where they are within a reasonable difference from the 'natural speed' of the road, otherwise drivers ignore them or treat them with contempt. In order to ensure compliance with this, speeds would have had to be measured and a report produced.

2. Who took the final decision about this new speed limit?
a. If an individual, a full name and job title is required
b. If a committee, the name of the committee, it's terms of reference and membership at the time including full names are required. Minutes of the relevant meeting(s) are also required in this case.

3. Have speeds on the stretch been re-measured since implementation?

4. When was the change made?

5. When was the decision taken?

6. What efforts were made to seek public consultation?
a. If newspaper adverts were used, please provide the copy, dates and newspapers involved.
b. If signage was used, please provide a copy.

7. What response was received to this consultation?

8. What risk assessment was carried out?

Again, I expect more than the above to be provided.

Yours faithfully,

Paul

Gemma Harrison, Fife Council

INFORMATION

I refer to your information request dated and received 25^th June 2018,

Fife Council does not hold the information you requested in terms of
Regulation 10(4)(a) – Information not held. This stretch of the A977 does
not fall within Fife Council’s remit, we believe it is within the remit of
Perth and Kinross Council and you may wish to redirect your request to
them.

I trust this is of assistance.
