Traffic delays on a busy Dundee road could be eased next week, with part of a major repair job set to finish.
Two lanes on East Dock Street have been closed since January 17 to allow for “essential” repair works to a gas main.
The emergency refit on the route, which runs parallel to Dundee harbour, has led to rush-hour gridlock, much to the annoyance of commuters.
Gas distribution network company SGN has, however, announced that it hopes to reopen one of the affected lanes next week.
Engineers have completed the repair work required on the westbound carriageway and are in the process of “restoring” the road surface.
