Hillside Road resurfacing

In past months, I have, on behalf of residents, raised the need for improvments to the Hillside Road road surface.    I am pleased to note that the City Engineer's Department is now undertaking works here and has written to householders as follows :
"No 32 Hillside Road to and including the junction with Hillside Terrace : Carriageway Resurfacing Works

I wish to notify you that work is programmed to commence at the above location on Monday 29 November 2010 and will last approximately 5 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 Hillside Terrace/Hillside Drive 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, especially during surfacing operations. Therefore, 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.

Please accept my apologies for any disruption these works may cause. I am sure that you will understand that major road maintenance work is unavoidable and necessitates a degree of inconvenience to road users.

If you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact the Roads Maintenance Partnership, by telephoning 01382 433558."
