A date has been set for work to rebuild a wall in Broughty Ferry — more than a year after it collapsed.
The wall on Ellieslea Road came crashing down moments after Karen Arensbach and her three-year old daughter drove past in October last year.
Residents were told in September that the repairs would begin soon and that were expected to be complete by the end of 2018.
But the green light has only now been given.
The rebuilding of the wall is set to commence on December 19 and is expected to be complete by March next year.
Nearby resident Jan Hampton had already complained that it was taking too long.
Ms Hampton described having to take an alternative route to leave her home due to the collapsed wall and described this as dangerous as they have to “edge the car out” on to the busy road.
She said: “We were told in September that the work would begin within six weeks, but then six weeks went by and nothing.
“I had to keep phoning the council and my husband was emailing. We were eventually given a meeting last week where they agreed to send us a programme of works and dates.
“We’re still waiting on the programme.
“If it starts on the 19th then they will only be here for a few days before going away for the holidays, so I think they’ve set this date just so they can say it started this year.
“We will have reduced access so it’s an inconvenience for something that isn’t our fault. When there’s been heavy rain there has been some landslide at the wall so we’ve had to keep that clean, again through no fault of our own.
“We warned the council before it happened that the wall was going to fall.
“We’ve been patient enough.
“If the work doesn’t start this time then I will have had enough of Dundee City Council.”
Ferry councillor Craig Duncan has been working with the residents to get local authority to take action.
The Liberal Democrat said: “I am relieved to be advised that contractors have finally been appointed and a start date has been promised to residents.
“These works are long overdue.
“Residents have shown the utmost patience in this matter. It should have been resolved long before now and I will therefore continue to take a close eye in progress to ensure this matter is now properly resolved within the promised timescale.”
Dundee City Council spokeswoman said: “A delay occurred during the tender process.”
