Upcoming roadworks

Due to British Telecom cable duct laying works, the following roadworks will take place in the near future :
Temporary traffic lights at the South Tay Street/Nethergate junction for a week from Saturday 9th January.
Southbound inside lane of North Marketgait closed from Wednesday 6th January for 5 days.
Neither of these roadworks requires a full road closure.

Temporary Traffic Order – Dudhope Roundabout : An Update

I recently mentioned the proposed temporary prohibition of traffic in all lanes of the Dudhope Roundabout and access to North and West Marketgait and Lochee Road from the roundabout for ten days from 10th September.

The City Council advised yesterday:

“I refer to my e-mails dated 9 August and 22 August in respect of the above Temporary Traffic Order.

I would advise that it has been decided that the works will not take place at this time and therefore this Order will no longer be going ahead.”

This is a sensible decision, as many students will be returning to the adjacent Opal 1 University of Abertay accommodation at the time.   Hopefully the resurfacing work can be carried out later in September/October.

Temporary Traffic Order – Dudhope Roundabout

From Dundee City Council:

Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.  The Order is expected to be in force for ten days from 10th September 2012.  Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in all lanes of the Dudhope Roundabout, and access to North and West Marketgait and Lochee Road from Dudhope Roundabout.
Pedestrian thoroughfare and vehicular access to premises will be maintained where possible.  Exit from Bell Street Car park will be via Dudhope Crescent Road.
Alternative routes will be available via (1) North Marketgait via Lochee Road, Dudhope Terrace and Constitution Road, (2) South Marketgait via Inner Ring Road and (3) West Marketgait via Hawkhill, Horsewater Wynd, Guthrie Street, Brook Street and Polepark Road.
Please forward any comments you may have regarding this proposal to the Network Management Team, City Development Department, Dundee House, 50 North Lindsay Street, Dundee, DD1 1LS, no later than five working days prior to the commencement date.  If you have any queries please call 433082.

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.
