Stewart Hosie MP has welcomed news that the council will be considering installing a yellow box junction where Clepington Road meets Forfar Road in the city after he sought information from them on what possible measures could be introduced to alleviate congestion problems in the area.
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.
Following his request to Dundee city council they responded confirming that it will be looked into later in the summer.
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 am glad 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 is 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 am happy that the Council will be promptly considering measures that will alleviate congestion in the area.”
