Councillor calls for yellow lines to be redone

COUNCILLOR for Broughty Ferry Derek Scott has called on Dundee City Council to deal with a parking issue on a residential street in his ward.

The double yellow lines in Albert Gardens have all but worn away and this is causing access problems.

Councillor Scott said: “When the relocation of Eastern Primary School was first mooted I highlighted the existing parking problems in the area and how much worse it was likely to become having two schools with large pupil numbers in the same location. Both schools have insufficient parking spaces to accommodate all the teachers, staff and visitors.

“Since the opening of Eastern Primary School I have regularly received complaints about inconsiderate parking from residents of Albert Gardens, Albert Road, Harley Street, Camperdown Street, Church Street and Seafield Road.”

He explained: “Albert Gardens is a cul-de-sac and access is often restricted by vehicles parking on both sides of its junction with Albert Road. It doesn’t help that the double yellow lines at this location are nearly completely worn away.

“I have asked for these to be renewed as soon as possible and I have also asked if there are other measures that can be taken to prevent the parking problem from occurring.

“Local residents will have little confidence that the council is responding to their concerns if something as simple as painting yellow lines is not dealt with in a timely manner.”
