Latest Waterfront Update

Below is the latest update on the Dundee City Waterfront Development works from the Tay Road Bridge Manager and how this has impacted on traffic on the bridge:

Contract 3 – Sir Robert McAlpine (SRM)

Progress April 2013

There have been no issues affecting traffic accessing and exiting the bridge.

As a result of a minor delay to the bridgeworks the current traffic management will now be in place until early June 2013 to allow the first phase of the new ramps to be completed and commissioned

Construction of the deck of the west half of the structure has been completed and the North approach ramp surfacing is ongoing. Preparation for waterproofing and strengthening of the existing deck on the southbound plaza area is underway.

Planned Works – May 2013

Waterproofing and finishing works to the west section of the Marketgait Bridge will be completed

Construction of new north approach to the bridge will be completed sufficiently to allow traffic to start using .

There will be one or two night time closures of the bridge (01:00 to 04:00) required towards the end of May to carry out works to move barriers and traffic signals to accommodate the new traffic layout but precise dates are not available.

As with all closures they will be notified via the Planned Restrictions section of the web site.

If there are any substantial changes to the above I will send an update.

Also information on the works is available on the Board web site www.tayroadbridge.co.uk.
