Temporary Traffic Order - Thomson Street

From Dundee City Council :

"Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating demolition and building works.  The Order is expected to be in force for 10 weeks from 9th March 2015.    Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.

The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in Thomson Street from Magdalen Yard Road for a distance of 100 metres or thereby in a northerly direction.

Access to residents will be maintained where possible.  Pedestrian provision will be maintained at all times.

An alternative route will be available via Magdalen Yard Road, Windsor Street and Perth Road.

If you have any queries please contact 433082."

I am advised that the Order is required to facilitate the building works to extend the nursing home at the bottom of Thomson Street.   There are some demolition works required in the first week or so.

I have received assurances that the builder has been asked by the City Council to letter drop the residents closest to the works and to maintain access to driveways where possible.
