Riverside Drive temporary closure

Over the past few days, I have complaints from the Roseangle area about the effect of the temporary closure on Riverside Drive on the amount of traffic in this fairly narrow street during the road closure. I had feedback from residents tonight that the street is quieter, although the closure is only from 9pm.

I have had the following feedback from the City Council :

"The closure on Riverside Drive is between 19:00 hrs and 06:00 hrs Sunday to Wednesday, Thursday and Bank Holiday Monday closure is 21:00 hrs to 06:00 hrs.

There are 13 warning signs in total in advance of the roadworks.

The diversion is clearly signed as Perth Road/Hawhill/West Marketgait and reverse. The diversion at Perth Road is at the east side of Invergowrie and not at Riverside Inn as there is a weight restriction on the bridge at this location.

We recognise that some traffic is using side streets such as Roseangle but we believe this is local traffic and I do not think any further signing will alleviate this issue.

Full discussions took place with Tayside Police and Network Management regarding suitable diversions, signing and programming of works."
