Dundee City Transmission Cable Replacement Project - an update

From Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks - regarding the high voltage cable replacement project - area from Lochee Road to Logie Avenue :

"As you’ll be aware the Dundee City Transmission Cable Replacement project commenced on 6 March 2017 and is progressing according to programme.  

Below is an update in relation to the works and roads affected by these as at w/c 20 March : 
  • Lochee Road, Joint Bay 1/2 – Road remains open to traffic who are able to pass with care
  • Lochee Road, Joint Bay 2/3 – Traffic management system sees the sequencing of traffic lights staggered to accommodate single direction traffic as at 13/03
  • Fleucher Street, Joint Bay 3/4 – Fleuchar Street will close w/c 20 March.  A diversion is in place and will take approximately 1 minute by car.  Local access for residents, pedestrians, cyclists etc will be maintained during this closure. 
I’d also like to give you a bit of notice regarding abnormal load deliveries to our lay down site at Brown Street.  There will be cable drum deliveries to this site between 29 – 31 March where parking at Brown Street between Douglas Street and Miln Street will be temporarily suspended during short periods of time.  

Traffic will be managed by Contraflow who will remain on the ground during these periods.  I am currently awaiting confirmation of the vehicles’ route from the Dock and also timings, when I am in receipt of this information I will be certain to pass it on to you."

I will keep residents updated as I hear further from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks.
