Hannah's Highway on Perth Road ...

I recently visited an elderly constituent who lives near Perth Road and who has real difficulty negotiating the pavements in the Perth Road shopping area, given the gaps in dropped kerbing. For anyone with mobility difficulties, this is a very real issue.

All credit to the Dundee Accessible Transport Action Group (DATAG) who led on the "Hannah’s Highway" campaign – to make getting down Perth Road to be accessible to all.

Head of Transportation at Dundee City Council has advised me that :

"The 'Hannah's Highway' project has identified a route from Sinderins to Duncan of Jordanstone Buildings - these will have dropped kerbs allowing an accessible route along the north side of Perth Road. 
The works are in final design stage and will be carried out during this Financial Year, programming of works are still to be agreed with Tayside Contracts."
