Seabraes and Seymour Street

Good to see the work to upgrade the footpath at the south end of Seymour Street starting yesterday (see my news release below). I'm also grateful to the Waste Management Department's Rapid Response Team who, following my request, have cleaned off graffiti (some offensive) at Seabraes.

NEWS RELEASE : Improvement to popular pathway in West End now started

Dundee City Councillor for the West End, Cllr Fraser Macpherson, said today that he was delighted that upgrading works on an area of pathway which is extremely well used by residents in the West End, but currently in very poor condition, has now started this week. The thoroughfare from Shaftesbury Road to Perth Road, adjacent to Seymour Lodge is owned by Tayside Police and Cllr Macpherson congratulated the Police on their positive response to his request that the Force upgrade it.

Earlier this year, two representatives of Tayside Police met Cllr Macpherson on-site, and it resulted in agreement by Tayside Police to upgrade and resurface the west side of the thoroughfare, adjacent to Seymour Lodge, a building in the Force’s ownership.

Cllr Macpherson said, “The pathway has deteriorated badly over the years and resurfacing it and creating a proper pavement edge will be a boon to local pedestrians. I am grateful to Tayside Police for its positive response on this matter.”
