Roseangle temporary closure - 204 bus service

Further to the Temporary Traffic Order for a temporary road closure from tomorrow in Roseangle to properly restore the setted road surface following temporary repairs, I asked the City Council if special arrangements to ensure the 204 bus can run along most of its route [as was done during the last temporary closure] could be undertaken again. 

The Transport Controller in the council's Sustainable Transport Team advised me as follows :

"The same diversion will be in place for this closure as the last.

Travelling towards Ninewells, service 204 will omit Rosenangle, Magdalen Yard Road and Windsor Street.

Travelling towards city centre, service 204 will serve Windsor Street and Magdalen Yard Road by using the Riverside Approach junction to turn, before travelling back up Windsor Street and then east along Perth Road to the city centre. 

This allows passengers to board the 204, travel to the city centre and then stay on the bus to take them to Ninewells. 

Although this increases passengers journey time it means they do not have to walk uphill to Perth Road to catch a bus travelling towards Ninewells."
