A972 Pitkerro Road Roundabout Footbridge, Kingsway, Dundee


  • Works set to begin Monday 23 September for four weeks



Maintenance work is planned for the footbridge at Pitkerro Road Roundabout which crosses the A972 in Dundee starting next week. 

The project will involve work around the columns of the bridge access ramps which will help ensure the bridge continues to function safely. The project follows on from previous footbridge improvements which were completed earlier this year.

The improvements will get underway on Monday 23 September and are expected to take up to four weeks to complete.

The majority of the works will take place during daytime hours with no impact to road users, however to ensure the safety of the workforce and motorists, an overnight road closure will be in place between 10pm and 2am on the northbound carriageway on Sunday 6 October and on the southbound carriageway on Sunday 13 October.  This is to allow for the safe delivery of some of the larger materials required during the project.  All traffic will be diverted locally and signs will be in place in advance to advise road users.   Some overnight single lane closures will also be in place for safety to allow any further deliveries of materials as required.

The footway below the footbridge will be closed throughout the project, with a signed footway diversion route in place.  The footbridge across the Kingsway will remain open to pedestrians throughout.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and this scheme is our commitment to that.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for road users as much as possible by carrying out the majority of the project off the road with no impact to the A90 and scheduling all material deliveries to take place overnight. The closure of the footpath below the footbridge is essential for ensuring the safety of pedestrians during the project. 

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

The works have been planned in conjunction with Dundee City Council to minimise disruption to the public and motorists.
