One of Dundee’s busiest roads is to close for two weeks for maintenance work to be carried out.
The A92 Arbroath Road, from the Scott Fyffe roundabout to Claypotts, will be closed eastbound for the last week of July and the first week of August as carriageway resurfacing work is carried out by Dundee City Council.
The eastbound carriageway will close from Monday to Friday July 23-27 and Monday to Friday July 30 to August 3.
Both carriageways will be closed fully on Saturday and Sunday July 28-29 as well as Saturday and Sunday August 4-5.
Steven Maloney, chairman of Craigie Sports Hub, which is on the affected road, said that the maintence work will affect people who use the training pitches.
He said: “It will be an inconvenience particularly for our travelling teams that we play against.
“I’m glad I know that now. It will affect our users.
“We have got changing rooms at the opposite side of Arbroath Road.
“Players use the changing rooms then have to cross back over Arbroath Road to use the training pitches.
“I’m not sure what will happen there.”
Councillor Philip Scott, whose Broughty Ferry ward includes Claypotts, said: “If it’s got to get done then so be it.
“I am glad they are doing something about it and hopefully it won’t interfere too much with people’s plans.
“If we get it done as quickly as we can there should not be too much inconvenience for the people who use the road.”
Fellow councillor Craig Duncan, whose Broughty Ferry ward includes Claypotts, said: “I have no issue with the roadworks works.
“There is never really a good time to do any of these things.
“It is just too bad that the work can’t happen outwith the main tourist season.”
Temporary traffic lights will also be at Albert Street on Sunday and Monday July 29-30 for sewer repairs.
