Sinderins junction - road markings

Following the recent road resurfacing of Perth Road (West Park Road to Sinderins), residents have pointed out that the junction markings at the Sinderins junction have been repainted wrongly - the right filter lane to allow traffic heading east into the Perth Road shopping area (from Perth Road west of the library) is now missing - see right :

I took this up on behalf of residents with the contractor (Tayside Contracts) and their Road Maintenance Partnership Manager advises :

"The road marking has been reviewed and compared with the original layout. The lining will require to be altered here to provide formal right turn and straight ahead as per existing pre works set up. At this moment in time there is no “Right Turn or Straight Ahead” arrow.   (It has been) ... identified that cars were operating the historical two lanes without the formal arrows however, we will check the lane width to ensure this is sufficient and if alterations are required these will also be made. 

The reason behind this not being marked as previously is in relation to reviewing the level of detail issued for each job by the Roads Maintenance Partnership. The level of lining information was not as we have provided in the past, this obviously has not been a success and we will review the process to ensure lining details are provided to meet individual scheme needs in future.

We will look to have the amendments carried out at an appropriate time in the near future."
