Temporary Traffic Order - Perth Road

The City Council has advised me as follows :

Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating carriageway resurfacing works. The Order is expected to be in force for ten days from 22 September 2010. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.

The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in Perth Road from Ninewells Avenue to Clovis Duveau Drive.

Access for residents will be maintained where possible.

An alternative route will be available via Riverside Avenue, Riverside Drive (except HGVs) and Perth Road. An alternative route for HGVs will be available via A85 Riverside Drive, South Marketgait, West Marketgait, Hawkhill and Perth Road.

Please forward any comments you may have regarding this proposal to the Network Management Team, City Development Department, Tayside House, Crichton Street, Dundee, no later than five working days prior to the commencement date. If you have any queries please contact the City Council on 433082.

The Council has written to affected residents as follows :

Dear Sir/Madam

Perth Road (Ninewells Avenue to Clovis Duveau Drive) - Carriageway Resurfacing Works
I wish to notify you that work is programmed to commence at the above location on Wednesday 22nd September, 2010 and will last approximately 10 days.

The contractor for the works is Tayside Contracts.

In the interest of public safety, a road closure will be implemented and through traffic will be diverted via Riverside Avenue/ Riverside Drive/ Perth Road and reverse. Through buses will divert via Tom MacDonald Drive/Mariner Drive/Apollo Way and reverse.

No on-street parking will be allowed on the section of carriageway being worked on. Access to
properties with driveways will be maintained, though delays will be experienced. Access to Millbay Gardens, Clovis Duveau Drive and Clayhills Grove will also be maintained. We would, however ask that vehicular traffic movements be kept to a minimum, where possible.

Please note that pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained throughout the works.
