I recently received concerns about road speed in Jedburgh Road. Residents have mentioned to me their concerns about this, especially given that elderly pedestrians use the street, going to visit at Royal Victoria Hospital.
I raised the matter with City Council road safety officers and have received the following positive response:
“Tayside Contracts re-surfaced this road a year ago and I had discussions at that time to ensure the SLOW road markings were reinstated correctly.
I will arrange to review this street in terms of markings and vehicle speeds.”
I am pleased that this review is being undertaken as I hope this will reassure residents that all steps are being taken to emphasise the need for vehicles to drive slowly and safely in the street.
