A worried husband has hit out after his wife remained stuck in Dundee city centre two hours after setting off from Ninewells to Fife.
The nurse left the hospital at 5pm today to make the 11-mile 20-minute journey to Gauldry in the Kingdom.
But because of congestion caused by road closures in the city, she is stranded in the Dock Stret area with traffic at a standstill.
Her husband told the Tele after receiving a phone call from his wife: “She left at 5pm and is still stuck in the underpass.
“The town is gridlocked but there’s not sign of any police directing traffic.
“They have blocked the town off but they could have let one side of the traffic go through so there could be some kind of traffic flow.”
He is anxiously awaiting his wife’s arrival but admits he does not know when that will be.
“I have got the tea on but I don’t know when she will be back,” he added.

The Tele reported earlier this afternoon that a motorist took more than an hour to travel to travel half-a-mile into Dundee city centre.
Traffic entering the heart of the city is almost at a standstill due to road closures brought about by the 3D Festival and V&A opening weekend.
Bus services are facing severe delays and traffic was previously pictured nose-to-tail on the Tay Road Bridge.
One motorist called up the Tele to voice his frustration, claiming he was stuck in traffic for an hour – and had yet to complete his journey.
The driver said: “It’s an omnishambles.
“I came through the Polepark lights at 3pm and I’ve just hit Dudhope roundabout.
“I’ve come half a mile in an hour and 10 minutes.”
The journey that the motorist claimed took an hour and ten minutes
Vehicles are delayed due to the closure of the Waterfront area for this weekend’s events.
All traffic heading through the city centre is being diverted via Marketgait, causing headaches for commuters.
The driver added: “The town is gridlocked. There’s been no contingency plan put in place.
“I have no problem with the V&A opening or road closures, but you have got to have a contingency plan in place – you can’t just let everyone get out of town by their own means.
“The ring road is chock-a-block.”
