Dundonians could face delays when temporary traffic restrictions are imposed on a busy city street.
Temporary traffic lights and turning prohibitions will be in place on Dens Road, at the junction with Isla Street, for one week from Tuesday.
Mains renewal work is to be carried out by Scottish Water as part of the company’s £5 million network upgrade.
The upgrade, which started in 2016, was scheduled for completion in spring but is now expected to finish at the end of the summer.
The work across the city is being carried out by Caledonia Water Alliance on behalf of Scottish Water.
Carol Kilburn, 55, who has lived on Dens Road for more than a year, said: “I don’t have a car but I know it can sometimes be a nightmare to get parked outside – I actually wasn’t aware of any pending work.
“Temporary traffic lights might actually help reduce some of the accidents on this stretch of road.”
Ernest Taylor, 68, who moved to the area more than six months ago, added: “It will certainly add to the congestion.
“The only positive is it will only last for a week.
“There appears to be roadworks everywhere you turn at the moment.
“I do know on football matchdays they close off North Isla Street so we may see some issues that could add additional problems.”
A Scottish Water spokesman said:“This work is part of the £5m mains upgrade project taking place across Dundee.
“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank customers and motorists for their patience and for their understanding.
“This mains upgrade project is being carried out to ensure the people of Dundee can continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water long into the future.”
