Right turn at the railway station - an update

As I am sitting on a train at the moment, it seems sort of appropriate to update an item I highlighted back in August - the unsatisfactory traffic signalling arrangements on Riverside Drive for drivers turning right (ie from the east) towards the railway station.

A roads safety officer at the City Council has now updated me as follows :

"The filter lane signal has never worked properly and the sensors were removed. The traffic signal engineers have informed me the filter signal head could be removed.

I have just returned from a meeting regarding the phasing of roadworks for the Dundee Central Waterfront project. The road layout round the railway station will be altered in the near future and the signalised junctions will become redundant. I do not propose to undertake any alterations in this area in the meantime."
