Bus shelter electrical faults - an update

Back in February, I mentioned of electrical faults affecting about 70 bus shelters across the city. As a result the real time bus information service had to be 'switched off' pending repairs across Dundee.
As constituents have asked when the electronic timetable facility will again be fully operational, I asked for an update on progress from the City Development Department and have been advised as follows :

"The first few shelters in the city centre have been repaired and were switched back on on 19 July 2010. The programme is expected to take around 6-8 weeks to complete. Our priority is city centre bus shelters and those on main bus service corridors (like the Perth Road).

We had to change around 900 paper based timetable displays and the schematic bus maps for the 27 June 2010 changes."
