Getting things done - Perth Road near Sinderins #dundeewestend

Residents recently contacted us about concerns around pedestrian safety crossing the slip road from Hawkhill to Perth Road near Sinderins, to the immediate west of the shops on the north side of Perth Road.

As one resident advised us :

"Many vehicles turn at a reasonable rate, preparing to slow up. Several, however, come around the bend at speed.

Recently my husband had stepped off the pavement when a car sped round the bend with the driver looking right towards oncoming traffic, completely unaware of the pedestrian on his left hand side. This is not the first time this has happened.

I can walk quite quickly, but many folk can’t. For drivers not used to the setup there, there is no warning sign about pedestrians crossing."

We have raised this with the council's road safety team leader requesting warning signage/road markings to make clear to drivers that pedestrians cross at this location.
