Members of Fife Council have passed a motion calling on the Scottish government to reassess the safety of the A92 as a matter of urgency.
The isolated road has been the site of 17 fatal accidents over the last decade.
It has also been suggested that making the road less dangerous for travellers could bring significant economic benefits for the area. Proposing the motion, Altany Craik cited a study produced by the council that showed a safer A92 could bring as much as £750 million to the region.
The motion stated: “After numerous summits, meetings and minimal improvements to the road, the time for action can no longer be put off.”
The document also called on transport minister Derek MacKay to help “deliver a road that is safe and fit for the modern times we live in”.
Following an amendment from the SNP that called for a reassessment rather than immediate action, the motion was passed.
