Broughty and Dundee road closures

DUNDEE City Council is planning to close several streets in Broughty Ferry as part of a wide ranginging Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

The closures will facilitate the laying of new 33kv electrical cable.

The Order is expected to be in force for nine weeks from February 4. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is 18 months.

Pedestrian thoroughfare and vehicular access to premises will be maintained where possible. The road closures will be carried out on a rolling programme, however it may be necessary to close more than one road at any time.

The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in:

1, A92 Arbroath Road, Dundee eastbound between Kingsway East and Gotterstone Avenue.

2, St Vincent Street, Broughty Ferry, between Queen Street and Brook Street.

3, Brook Street, Broughty Ferry, between St Vincent Street and New Road.
