Following concerns from residents about road safety at the bend in Riverside Place where the main leg of the road goes to the east after drivers come into Riverside Place from Perth Road, I raised this with the City Council and have received the following positive feedback :
“I have checked the existing road markings on the aerial photos (street is under currently under snow).
The existing road markings are in a poor condition and require to be re-marked. Being more visibly may be all that is required.”
* A resident pointed out to me that there is inadequate street signage for Hazel Avenue – signs are missing at the junction with Hazel Drive and there is only one, poor conditioned, one at the junction with Perth Road. I reported this to the City Development Department and have received the following response : “The street name plates at Hazel Avenue referred to in your email below will be checked within the next two weeks.
It is unlikely that any replacement signs will be erected by the end of the financial year however those required will be attended to as soon as possible thereafter.”
Subjects covered include school buses in the West End, Dundee Airport parking charges, West End Christmas Week, signs in Osborne Place and the boundary fencing round the former Homebase site on Riverside Drive.
