Transport chiefs will not cut the speed limit at a notorious Tayside junction – despite pleas from residents.
Eighteen serious or fatal road accidents took place on the A90 between Dundee and Forfar between July 2012 and December 2016, with four people killed on the road between 2012 and 2017.
The stretch of the A90 from the Inveraldie and Glamis junctions, which includes the Tealing junction, was highlighted for further investigation following Transport Scotland’s annual road safety review and a concerted campaign by residents.
But Transport Scotland has ruled out the introduction of a 50mph limit along the stretch until a three-year monitoring period on the introduction of average speed cameras along the A90 has concluded.
Tealing Community Council chairwoman Sandra Burke said: “This dangerous accident spot must be properly improved or speed along its length substantially reduced.”
