Drivers in Perth will face diversions for four weeks as major roadworks begin near the city centre.

Carriageway resurfacing works will start on Wednesday in the Gannochy area to fix numerous potholes.

Gannochy Road, alongside several other streets nearby, will be affected for the rest of this month with various diversion in pace until December 1.

Peter Barrett, councillor for the city centre area, says road repairs are badly needed in the area.

He said: “It is really good news that the council is able to start these works before winter sets in.

“Some of the streets are badly potholed but resurfacing the area now will mean that severe damage over the winter period will be avoided.

“Access for pedestrian and emergency vehicles to premises will be maintained and access for public transport has been agreed.

“The resurfacing will make a vast improvement to the local roads and I hope that disruption for residents can be kept to a minimum while the works are being carried out.”
