Bin collection – Step Row

I have, in recent weeks, received residents’ concerns about the bin collection in Step Row taking place late due to difficulties getting access for the bin lorry.  
 
I raised this matter with both environment management and City Development.    The Director of City Development has advised :
 
“A site inspection has been carried out in Step Row and it was observed that where the lower narrow section is, the existing lighting column is placed just behind the kerb line at the front of the footway and this is causing a pinchpoint which could be the reason why bin lorries are unable to pass.
As an alternative to extending the waiting restrictions which would reduce on street parking provision for residents, I have arranged to relocate the lighting column to the rear of the footway and this is currently programmed for February 2016.”

Bus Shelters

Dundee City Council News Release

Almost £200,000 could be spent in the next few months on expanding the number of SmartBus passenger waiting shelters in Dundee.

Councillors on Dundee City Council’s policy and resources committee, which meets on Monday (June 23) will be asked to approve funding for 16 new shelters across the city.
Convener of the planning and transport committee, Fraser Macpherson, said, “The demand for these shelters to be installed at more locations has been very high as passengers who have used them experience their advantages.
“The plan is for two locations in each of the council’s eight wards to have a new shelter provided during this financial year.”
The SmartBus shelters feature a covered passenger waiting area, seating, real time bus information, a timetable poster, lighting and CCTV capability. The total installation cost is expected to be around £192,000.
Installation will be carried out by a combination of contractors through an existing partnership agreement with Tayside Contracts and by specialist suppliers.

Note : West End new shelters are :
· Perth Road at Seafield Lane
· Magdalen Yard Road at Step Row
