Another temporary traffic order – Thomson Street

Earlier this month, I advised of a temporary traffic order in respect of Thomson Street.   However, this temporary road closure from 13th June did not go ahead due to issues around the completion of the water supply to the care home extension at the south end of the street.
 
The temporary traffic order has now been rescheduled.    The City Council advises:
 
THE ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984  :  SECTION 14(1)
 
THE DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL AS TRAFFIC AUTHORITY being satisfied that traffic on the road should be prohibited by reason of Scottish Water service connection works being carried out HEREBY PROHIBIT the driving of any vehicle in Thomson Street (from Magdalen Yard Road to approx. 100metres north), Dundee.
 
This notice comes into effect on Monday 27 June 2016 for 5 working days.
 
Pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained.
 
Alternative routes for vehicles are available via Perth Road / Roseangle.
 
For further information contact 433082.

Thomson Street to finally re-open to through traffic

Residents of Thomson Street will be pleased to learn that the street is finally to be re-opened to through traffic after many months of a closure of its southern end due to construction of a care home extension.
 
I have been given an assurance that, by Friday of this week, the street will be fully reopened, although there will need to be some traffic management – a ‘give and take’ system with just one lane operating.   This should not present problems due to relatively low vehicle numbers.
 
I have been asking the City Council for some time to liaise with the company constructing the care home extension to get the road re-opened as it has been closed for months, with only some through access at weekends.    Given the narrowness of the street, manoeuvring vehicles at the dead end has been an added difficulty.   I am therefore pleased the road will finally be open to through traffic.

I am advised that the Order is required to facilitate the building works to extend the nursing home at the bottom of Thomson Street.   There are some demolition works required in the first week or so.
 
I have received assurances that the builder has been asked by the City Council to letter drop the residents closest to the works and to maintain access to driveways where possible.
