Drivers are being warned further changes to Dundee’s road layout are inevitable as work on the city’s waterfront continues.
Will Dawson, city development convener at the council, has urged motorists to be aware of changes to priorities in the Tay Bridge area, as work at the site progresses.
It comes after some motorists reported problems with the latest layout, implemented on Friday.
Asking commuters to exercise caution as they adjust to the changes, Councillor Dawson said: ”I guess it’s a force of habit for some.
”We have tried to tell people that changes were coming and I would ask people to please be aware of signs and any new information.
”This will last for the next few years but it will get us to where we want to be.”
Motorists using the bridge have contacted The Courier to register concerns after the new access routes and road markings came into effect.
Traffic heading into Dundee is now able to use a new westbound access ramp on to South Marketgait, while traffic leaving the city en route to Fife is subject to new markings outside of Customs House.
The changes were implemented in the early hours of the morning with police sealing off the route before diverting vehicles on to the new section of road.
Friday saw many commuters struggling to cope with the new layout, with some accidentally ending up on the bridge.
Gary Liddon posted on Twitter: ”New road layout in Dundee led me over the Tay Bridge. I didn’t want to go over the Tay Bridge. On the upside, it’s a pretty view.”
Numerous other motorists contacted The Courier to register their concerns at the layout, saying there had been a lack of warning.
Pleading with drivers to exercise caution as work continues, Mr Dawson added: ”I would ask drivers show patience, stick with us and plan journeys ahead.”
Ken Guild, chairman of the Waterfront Board and council leader, said: ”People are beginning to see for themselves the new waterfront truly taking shape.
”Significant progress is being made now on delivering the vision, not only earlier than scheduled, but also under budget.”You can download a leaflet explaining the road changes by clicking here.
