I'm calling on Dundee City Council to re-think its stance on a pedestrian crossing near to the junction of Blackness Road, Ashbank Road and Seymour Street. I'm a local resident shared constituents concerns with regard to the crossing. This issue has been raised with me by many local constituents including elderly residents and the not so old.
I am concerned that the City Council appears to have dismissed residents concerns about crossing Blackness Road at this point. This is a very busy area with a lot of traffic and also a number of Sheltered Housing facilities in the vicinity. I think that Dundee City Council should engage with the local community and look at ways of improving road safety here, including revisiting the issue of a pedestrian crossing here.
