Hawkhill by-pass - new pedestrian crossing

As residents will have noted, there are currently roadworks and a temporary crossing on Hawkhill at Tesco Express near to the Marketgait roundabout - see right.

I have discussed the works with the Head of Transportation who advises that the aged crossing is being replaced with a new system and this requires a new ducting across the road.     The works should be completed within the next 7-10 days.

This is a very well-used crossing so the new pedestrian crossing is to be welcomed as was the recent replacement of the old crossing on Riverside Drive immediately east of the main Tesco Extra on Riverside Drive.
