The third phase of £500,000 footbridge protection improvements for three bridges on A90 Kingsway in Dundee to take place  


A972 Pitkerro Road Roundabout Footbridge, Kingsway Dundee


  • Works set to begin Sunday 24 March for four weeks


The third phase of footbridge improvements on the A90 Kingsway in Dundee will see Pitkerro Road Roundabout footbridge benefit from £75,000 worth of improvements later this month. Works are scheduled to start Sunday 24 March and will see teams begin work on the third bridge as part of the £500,000 footbridge protection project.

The first and second phase of works saw improvements made to Strathmartine Road Roundabout footbridge and Old Glamis Road Roundabout last year.

The project on Pitkerro Road Roundabout footbridge will involve upgrading vehicle restraint barriers and realigning small sections of the carriageway to improve the overall footbridge protection from traffic.

The improvements will get underway on Sunday 24 March and are expected to take around four weeks to complete. The majority of the works will take place between 7.30pm and 6am each night, with some daytime work carried out in the verge next to the carriageway which will not affect traffic.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and road users during the improvements, overnight single lane closures will be in place each evening from 7.30pm until 6am.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This phase of £500,000 investment from Transport Scotland will see the near completion of improvements made to three pedestrian and cyclist footbridges on the A90.

“We’ve arranged for the majority of the project to take place overnight to limit the impact of the work to road users and pedestrians as much as possible. Any required daytime work will not affect any traffic. We’ve also taken steps to minimise noise disruption with all noisy construction activities suspended at 11pm each evening.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible, however we encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website.”

These works have been planned in conjunction with Dundee City Council and Police Scotland.
