The City Council has now informed me :
“This area around Peddie Street and Annfield Street has been included in the area already identified and a works order has been issued to Tayside Contracts undertake dropped kerb work here. We have strived to provide access at most important junctions in this area.”
“On the north kerb at Annfield Street , about half way between Peddie Street and Blackness Street there are two large holes. One is surrounded by a metal cage. It looks like someone has once done work on the gas supply but never refilled in the hole. Next to it is a 1/2 metre square hole in the tarmac about 8 inches deep. I can’t tell why it has been dug out or by who. I placed a bin over it to stop people falling down the hole.”
I contacted Dundee City Council and have been given the following feedback :“This excavation was not carried out by a utility but by a local company under a road opening permit.
Their agent has been contacted and they will ensure the company reinstates this timeously.
I visisted site and there is adaquate protection around the excavation so there is no danger to the public.
Also two furter bore-holes were taken at the locus within the last fortnight or so and these will also be properly reinstated.”
