PRESS RELEASE - LOCAL MP SEEKS INFORMATION FROM COUNCIL OVER BUSY DUNDEE JUNCTION
Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie has asked Dundee City Council whether it would be feasible or not to install a box junction where Clepington Road meets Forfar Road.
The junction is incredibly busy, particularly during peak times of the day, something that will no doubt increase when the Dundee Transport Museum moves to the old Maryfield Tram Depot.
Mr Hosie, who wrote to the council after receiving several enquiries from concerned constituents about the junction, expressed his desire to reduce any risk of future accidents and to keep the flow of traffic as intended.
Commenting Stewart Hosie MP said:
“The safety of Dundee citizens is absolutely paramount and I hope that the Council will continue to make sure that everyone in the city feels safe to travel and enjoy all that Dundee has to offer.”
“It is important, particularly with the expected move of the Transport Museum to the old Maryfield Tram Depot site that the area not only safe for the residents and visitors to the city but that the traffic flows as intended and congestion is kept to a minimum.”
“I hope the council will recognise the need for this junction to be installed and take the necessary action to reassure the people of Dundee.”
