Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating carriageway resurfacing works. The Order is expected to be in force for two weeks from 2nd May 2017. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
I had a concern raised about the quality of the finished road surface on Riverside Drive and have had the following update from the Roads Maintenance Partnership Manager at Tayside Contracts, which also updates on the re-opening of the right turn from Riverside drive (heading west) into Riverside Approach and the removal of traffic management :
“I’m not aware of there being any surfacing issues however, a final inspection of the works will be carried out next week and I’ll provide feedback following this.
With regards completion of the works and previous correspondence. The traffic management will not be completely removed until Wednesday next week however, as of this Friday all vehicular restrictions will be lifted i.e. Riverside Approach will be open to right turn movements in a westbound direction. The outstanding works will be the completion of the footways and other minor works which require traffic management to be left in place for H&S reasons.”
“Due to issues with weather at the beginning of last week and some other operational issues. It will be the end of the week before all traffic management will be removed from the works.
Riverside Approach is now open to traffic, the only restriction is the right turn manoeuvre to Riverside Approach in the westbound direction.”
