Getting things done - road safety #dundeewestend

As residents are aware, I have long campaigned for further road safety improvements in the West End including "Twenty's Plenty" in residential areas where there is local support for this and use of vehicle activated speed limit signs.     

There are currently two such signs in the West End on Blackness Road (east of Balgay Park) and Perth Road (near Clovis Duveau Drive) and I have campaigned for more of these at the request of residents - for example on City Road and Perth Road east of Harris Academy.

I highlighted at the council's City Development Committee recently that the council does not actually have a policy for the use of vehicle activated speed limit signs - eg new sites, priority and rotation of signs.

The Head of Roads and Transportation thereafter updated me as follows :

"I have taken on board your comments below and the matters as raised at the City Development Committee and we will be developing a procedure for recording, prioritising and rotating the Vehicle Activated speed signage.  

Some of the older signs are fixed (owing to their design) however we will look at the type and provision and design of a rotational programme of sights around the city.  

There are obviously restricted financial budgets.  However there are opportunities through funding streams such as the Cycling, Walking and Safer Streets initiative and other competitive packages that I will encourage us to follow through."

Getting things done - Riverside Drive #dundeewestend

Following concerns recently from residents about flooding on the rail bridge south of the Botanic Garden/Vernonholme on Riverside Drive, I raised the matter with the City Council and have received the following feedback from the environment supervisor in Neighbourhood Services :

"I checked the bridge ... the drains are currently running clear and the road leading down to the bridge is also clear of any build up of detritus apart from half a dozen pine cones. 

The bridge itself and the road leading down to Riverside does have a severe build up of detritus.   This is due to the bridge having a 3.2 tonne weight limit.   We are unable to cross over it with our sweeper which is a 5 tonne vehicle."

However, the Roads Maintenance Partnership has promised to monitor during rain and for build-up of debris.

Save the 204 bus!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Jeanetta Black for her letter in Thursday's "Evening Telegraph" regarding the council's axing of the 204 bus :


The campaign to save the 204 is far from being over and, like Jeanetta, I share the concern that the so-called Blether Bus "alternative" service the council is suggesting is simply not fit for purpose.    The "service" utilises council mini-buses that many older folk and people with mobility difficulties will not be able to access.

I have now queried the legal position with Dundee City Council's Head of Democratic and Legal Services.    Local authorities had a responsibility in Part 5 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 that required all land-based transport vehicles to be accessible to disabled people including those who need to remain in wheelchairs.    These responsibilities transferred to the 2010 Equality Act and there is now also a public sector equality duty in Scotland.    

Meantime, the petition to save the 204 bus has gathered momentum with over 260 local residents signing it.    It can be signed at www.tinyurl.com/savethe204.

Getting things done - Saggar Street #dundeewestend

Following complaints from residents about the poor road surface in parts of Saggar Street some weeks ago, the City Council's Roads Maintenance Partnership promised a thorough annual inspection and any resultant repairs was due in the near future.

I have since been advised :

"The annual inspection of Saggar Street will take place late June/early July.

However an order has been raised for pothole repairs to be done until the inspection takes place and the planer patching is identified."

Additionally, at the request of residents, I asked the council to consider the provision of "yellow box" markings on City Road at the Saggar Street junction, given the difficulties drivers have exiting Saggar Street at rush hour.

The council's Team Leader in the Network Management Team has updated me as follows and I welcome the promised assessment :

"My initial assessment and observations are that the City Road junction with Saggar Street which is a no through road would not require a Yellow Box Junction markings.

Not all junctions are suitable for the box markings and a traffic survey should be carried out to determine the extent of the problem. We will arrange for this junction to be assessed for the suitability.

Factors which influence a decision to provide box markings are the junction should preferably though not necessarily be controlled by signals. This would cause more delays with the difference in flows and the close proximity of the City Road /Tullideph signalised junction."

In addition, he has logged a job for the wall to be rebuilt, the coping stone replaced and any rubble to be removed. The target date for the work is 27th June, but he has asked the Repairs Manager to assign the work as soon as possible."
