Drivers on one of the city’s busiest roads are facing more than two weeks of disruption from next Monday as major resurfacing works get underway.
The A92 Arbroath Road will be closed eastbound between the Scott Fyffe roundabout and the junction at Claypotts from Monday July 23.
The stretch, which passes Gotterstone Drive to its north and the Dundee and Angus College playing fields to its south, will close completely in both directions on the weekend of Saturday July 28 to Sunday July 29.
It will re-open to traffic heading into Dundee on the Monday but will remain closed for eastbound vehicles for another working week, from July 30 to August 3.
The road will be closed in its entirety on the following Saturday and Sunday.
Access to traffic should be returned to normal by Monday August 6.
The programme is being led by Dundee City Council and has been arranged to take place during the school summer holidays when traffic levels are traditionally lighter.
Residents living in Gotterstone Drive and the surrounding areas will be allowed access to their properties while the work is being carried out.
Traffic heading from the city towards Broughty Ferry will likely be diverted on the southern A930 Monifieth Road.
Ferry ward conservative councillor Philip Scott said he hoped the scheme would not cause too much disruption for locals.
“If it’s got to get done then so be it,” he said.
“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.”
His Lib Dem constituency counterpart Craig Duncan said: “I have no issue with the roadworks.
“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.”
Fountainbleau Drive, from Pitkerro Drive to Rowantree Crescent will also be closed for five days starting from Monday July 23 July for works on a pedestrian crossing and other road safety features.
