Earlier this year, I was pleased to report that Tait's Lane's road surface was finally getting resurfaced and as you can see from the picture (right) its really needed.
Since being elected to the City Council, I have been working with a number of the residents to get priority for the resurfacing here; it was a commitment during the Tayside Regional Council days so let's just say the residents have been patient.
But patience pays off and here's the draft temporary traffic order sent to me for comment yesterday :
Dundee City Council propose to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating carriageway reconstruction works. The Order is expected to be in force for three weeks from 23 October 2006. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in Taits Lane between its junction with Corso Street and number 11 Taits Lane (a distance of 200 metres or thereby).
Pedestrian thoroughfare and vehicular access to premises will be maintained.
An alternative route will be available via Hawkhill, Peddie Street and Corso Street.
