No through road at Blinshall Street

I have received concerns that there is no “No Through Road” signage at the top end of Blinshall Street (the south end that does not meet Hawkhill) which results in vehicles having to u-turn in the street.
 
Having raised this with the City Council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership, I have been informed by them that:
 
“Transportation has … agreed that erecting dead end “T” signs may be beneficial.   Their budget is fully committed at moment so there isn’t any scope to fund the erection of new signs by them.    Replacement of the existing street name plates to incorporate the dead end “T” would appear to be the most suitable alternative and as such, new signs will be ordered and fixed to the walls at the entrance to the street in due course.”

Traffic Order – Blinshall Street

From Dundee City Council:
 
DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL  :  ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984
 
DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL (BLINSHALL STREET AREA, DUNDEE) (VARIATION OF WAITING RESTRICTIONS) ORDER 2013
 
Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 the effect of which will be to alter the waiting restrictions in the Blinshall Street area due to the changing parking requirements of the area.
 
Full details of the proposals are contained in the draft Order, which together with a Statement of the Council’s reasons for proposing to make the Order may be examined during normal office hours and without payment of fee at Dundee City Council offices, Reception, 18 City Square, Dundee by any person, during a period of 21 days from 25/10/13.  A copy of the plans can also be viewed by searching for “Traffic Regulation Orders (In Progress)” in the A to Z section of our website.
 
Any person may within 21 days from 25/10/13 object to the proposed Order by notice in writing to the Head of Democratic and Legal Services, Dundee City Council, 21 City Square, Dundee.  Objections should state the name and address of the objector, the matters to which they relate and the grounds on which they are made.

Waiting Restrictions Review in part of the West End Ward

Back in April, I mentioned that I had chaired a residents’ meeting at Pleasance Court at which one of the matters discussed was the proposal by the City Council to review the parking waiting restrictions on streets in the area.
 
This should hopefully free up some additional on-street car parking in the area – including quite a wide area to the east of Pleasance Court towards Lochee Road to the north and Hawkhill to the south.
 
As a preliminary part of the legal procedures to be undertaken to give effect to the proposals, the Council be undertaking public consultation soon and you can download plans of the current situation and the proposals here.

Westbound – Lochee Road

The City Council has advised me that from 17th June – for four nights – westbound traffic on Lochee Road between Blinshall Street and the North Marketgait roundabout will be prohibited between 7pm and 2am each night.

I am advised that this is because of telecommunications ducting works and the alternative route is via West Marketgait/Hawkhill/Horsewater Wynd/Guthrie Street/Brook Street/Polepark Road.

Pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained throughout.
