Nethergate – Marketgait to South Tay Street

I recently queried why the promised road resurfacing on Nethergate – Marketgait to South Tay Street – has yet to be carried out.  
The City Council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership has advised me as follows :
“The section of Nethergate between Marketgait and South Tay St was deferred to 2015/16 due to uncertainty over Scottish Water mains replacement proposals.   
Currently Scottish Water has not provided a detailed programme with timescales as to their proposals therefore I am unable to provide a timescale as to when our resurfacing works will be carried out, other than to follow Scottish Waters works.  
This road is regularly inspected as part of the formal regime … and monitored for actionable defects which require safety repairs.”
