Getting things done – Perth Road #dundeewestend

A number of elderly constituents have raised with me how welcome it would be to have a bus shelter on the north side of Perth Road at the bus stop a little east of opposite the Seafield Road junction.
 
I raised this with the Parking and Sustainable Transport Team Leader at the City Council who advises :
 
“A quick look at the street layout indicates that without a redesign of the footway, there isn’t sufficient space at this stop for a bus shelter.   
 
Notwithstanding, we’ll add it to our list of ‘shelter requests’ and score it in due course to see where it ranks against other requests for bus shelters.”

Getting things done – Paton’s Lane #dundeewestend

Following complaints from residents about the state of the pathway at the north end of Paton’s Lane that runs to Perth Road – including weeds and dumped shopping trolleys – I raised this with the City Council and the Area Manager in Neighbourhood Services’ Environmental Management Section has since advised :
 
“The path has been treated with weedkiller and the shopping trolleys … removed.”

Getting things done – Perth Road #dundeewestend

Some months ago, at the request of residents, I requested that the council considers installing additional Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs on Perth Road to encourage all motorists to drive below the 30mph limit.
 
The request was in relation to the area east of Harris Academy (there has been one sign provided some time ago further west around Clovus Duveau Drive) and the new signs have now been provided – see below :
 
 
Although welcoming these, I have received comments that these signs (there’s one on each side of the road) could be better positioned – one in particular is partly obscured by foliage.
 
I have passed on these comments to the City Council and have received a commitment to inspect the sites and review the exact siting of the new Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs.
