Good news reported at the Blackness Area Residents’ Association meeting last night was its success in getting nearly £6000 in lottery funding for a community project. This will allow the group to buy a high-tech cinema-style projection TV/DVD system to allow them to, for example, run film shows for the local residents at the Corso Street sheltered lounge. The Lord Provost will be presenting them with their award at the City Chambers next Thursday.
Been advised by the City Engineer’s Department that, due to patching of the roadway in Commercial Street, it will result in two days’ road closure of Exchange Street between Castle Street and Commercial Street; also the nearby part of Dock Street will be closed westbound (paart from buses and taxis). Local access and pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained throughout.
And also … to quote the traffic order :-
“Dundee City Council propose to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating the Continental Market and the Christmas Lights switch on event. The Order is expected to be in force for eleven days from 16 November 2006. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
“The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in (a) High Street between Castle Street and Crichton Street, (b) Commercial Street between Seagate and Murraygate and (c) Castle Street between High Street and Exchange Street.
“Commercial Street and Castle Street will be closed on Sunday 19 November 2006 only. Access to Exchange Street will be maintained via Commercial Street, Dock Street and Castle Street. Alternative routes for vehicles will be available via Seagate and the inner ring road.”
As always, queries about road closures etc can be made to the City Council Planning & Transportation Department on 433168.
