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.”
It will be approximately two weeks before all traffic management is removed and there is complete unrestricted access – ie no traffic management in place.
By the end of this week Riverside Approach should be open again to traffic providing access from Magdalen Green to and from Riverside Drive.
The north footway will remain under construction until the 12th October, with all traffic management removed by 13/10/14.
All the above is based on weather permitting and nothing unforeseen arising.
