A senior Dundee councillor has called for a footbridge near one of the Kingsway’s busiest roundabouts to be torn down and replaced with “modern pedestrian crossings” after raising concerns about its safety.

Coldside councillor Mark Flynn, who is deputy convener of the local authority’s city development committee, said a “full traffic and pedestrian management review” should be carried out at the Strathmartine Road roundabout on the A90.

Mr Flynn confirmed he has had discussions with road management and council officers after being contacted by concerned residents.

A spokesman for Transport Scotland said: “Once a traffic study has been completed, we will continue to engage with stakeholders on any feasible improvements.”
