Fife Council will fund safety improvements at a Fife quarry where two teenagers lost their lives.
South-west Fife area committee has approved £12,500 to set up fencing and signs at Prestonhill Quarry near Inverkeithing.
The funding will also be used to create a memorial at the quarry at which there have been several tragedies over the years.
Recently two 18-year-olds died in the murky waters of the disused quarry.
Cameron Lancaster from Burntisland died there in August 2014 and Kirkcaldy teen John McKay perished last June.
Since the last death, a multi-agency partnership has come together in an attempt to avoid any more tragedies.
The action plan is being implemented by Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Inverkeithing Community Council, Fife Council as well as representatives from the Royal Life Saving Society.
But a stumbling block has been tracking down Prestonhill’s owners.
Councillor Lesley Laird, Fife’s depute leader, said: “Our top priority is to keep people safe in this area and prevent any further tragedies.
“The £12,500 from Fife Council will go towards improving the fencing around the quarry and forms part of an action plan covering signs, fencing and education.
“A multi-agency approach towards Prestonhill Quarry is being undertaken, and Fife Council is already working closely with the police and fire services.
“We urge people to avoid using this area and we are also supporting educational initiatives and direct discussions with the local community to raise the profile of the dangers of swimming or playing in quarries.
“Unfortunately, Fife Council is still having real difficulties in tracking down the owners of the quarry and making sure they fulfil their obligations.
“The council continues to pursue the owners.”
The committee chairman Bobby Clelland added: “Members have been very involved in the development of actions and we are working actively with other agencies to prevent any further tragedy at the quarry.
“The funding approved from the local community planning budget will help make the area safer and raise awareness of the dangers around the quarry.
“Finding the owners of the site is key to resolving this situation, but until this happens it’s important that we do all that we can.”
