West End roads and pavements improvements – 2016/17

The City Council’s City Development Department has advised of its programme for roads and pavements upgrades for this new financial year – 2016/17.    In the West End Ward, these are as follows :
Adopted pavement improvements :
• Perth Road – north footway – Duncan of Jordanstone to Springfield
• Perth Road – north footway – Speedwell Bar to Sinderins junction
• Smellies Lane
• Guthrie Street – Pizza Hut to Horsewater Wynd
• Ashbank Road (where part of the east footway is sunken and needs reinstatement)
Unadopted pavements :
• Magdalen Yard Road – south side (new 2 metre wide footpath round north edge of Magdalen Green)
• West Park Road – west side – Roxburgh Terrace to Norwood Terrace
Roads improvements:
• Riverside Drive – Rail Station to Tesco Goods Entrance – Eastbound 
• Nethergate – Marketgait to South Tay Street 
• Perth Road – west of Blackness Library to West Park Road (start – Monday 9th May) 
• Riverside Drive – Riverside Inn to Riverside Approach 
Non-Adopted Asset Programme :
• Balgay Cemetery Various Internal Roads – overlay
• Balgay Road – Both Footways reconstruction
• Logie Avenue Footway and Access at Lock ups resurface
A map of the proposals for the West End is below :
I am pleased at further progress on the unadopted pavements programme that will include the north edge of Magdalen Green again having a proper footpath (as it did historically).
It is particularly good to see roads and pavements being included where I have campaigned for improvements on behalf of residents – the two stretches of Perth Road’s pavements east of Sinderins (on the north side) being two examples.
