Concerns have been raised about upcoming roadworks on a busy Dundee route.
A section of the A923 Coupar Angus Road in the Dryburgh area of the city will be closed northbound later this month for eight weeks.
The stretch of road from Dunsinane Avenue to Quarryside will be shut to allow SGN to carry out upgrades to its gas network.
Residents told the Tele of their concerns over the works.
Retired taxi driver David Cree, 74, who has lived on Coupar Angus Road for 18 years, said: “We got a leaflet through the door explaining that they were shutting the road and that it may cause disruption to our gardens.
“They have said they will replace anything they have to dig up, but I am not sure I trust them to do it properly.
“When they did cable works, they only roughly put the gardens and pavements back in place.
“As for the road shutting, it is concerning, as I need to use my car. Hopefully, it won’t affect me getting in and out too much.”
Another resident, who asked not to be named, said: “I am pretty worried about how chaotic these roadworks will be.
“They have told us that there should be minimal disruption, but I doubt that.
“Eight weeks is also a long time for it to be shut — I am not looking forward to it at all.”
Chef Euan Duncan, 44, added: “The last time the road was closed it meant we got some peace and quiet.
“I also ride a motorbike, so limited access to my driveway wouldn’t affect me too much.”
Katie Lobban, communications officer for SGN, said: “Following discussions with the local authority, our work will start on Monday October 30 2017 and will last for approximately eight weeks
“To ensure the safety of our engineers and road users, a northbound road closure will be in place.
“Our work will take place between the junctions with Quarryside and Dunsinane Avenue, with a signed diversion route in place for motorists via Harefield Road and King’s Cross Road.
“We’re aware this is a busy route and would like to thank motorists and local residents while we carry out this essential work.”
