Handrail extension promised - Pennycook Lane #dundeewestend

Residents recently pointed out that it would be helpful if a short extension was added to the south end of the rail to take the rail right down to the flat pavement of Perth Road.

I asked the City Council if this could be provided and I am pleased to say this was agreed to.   I recently asked for a timescale for installation and have now been advised by the City Development Department as follows :

"This is in hand and I am waiting on a date from the blacksmith for the works to be undertaken."
