Temporary Traffic Order - Pentland Avenue

From the City Council :

Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating road safety improvement works.  The Order is expected to be in force for 6 days from 2nd November 2020.  Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.

The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all westbound vehicular traffic in Pentland Avenue from City Road to Scott Street.

An alternative route will be available via City Road and Scott Street.

Queries should be addressed to the Network Management Team, City Development Department, Dundee House, 50 North Lindsay Street, Dundee, DD1 1LS or call 433082.

The council has further advised me :

“The road safety improvement scheme includes a new central triangular traffic island with new drop kerb provision and new road markings including hatching.

The island will be installed in Pentland Avenue where the junction meets City Road. 

This measure will improve pedestrian and road safety.”
