West End car park improvements10/01/20
WORKS TO improve a city car park are set to get underway later this month.
The facility at Roseangle will get new lighting and have a pair of meters installed ahead of charges being introduced at seven West End car parks on January 27.
Mark Flynn, depute convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “While we fully understand that not everyone wants to have to pay to park their car, the introduction of charges in these car parks will encourage turnover of spaces for shoppers and businesses, support overnight parking for residents and promote sustainable travel.
“There was engagement last year with community representatives in the West End to discuss a range of parking issues that provided an opportunity to air the challenges that car usage brings to areas like the West End.
“We are continuing to look carefully at the use of on-street parking bays and discuss the desirability of residents' parking areas.”
As well as Roseangle, charging is being brought in at Pennycook Lane, Miller's Wynd, Mid Wynd, Bellfield Street (North), Ryehill Lane and Union Place (North). Overnight, weekend and up to two hours of parking will be free, with two to four hours costing £1 and four to eight hours £2.
The works will mean that the Roseangle car park will be closed to all vehicles from Monday January 20 for up to five days.
Drivers are being asked to ensure that any vehicles parked there are removed by 8am on that date as the work carried out by Tayside
Contracts gets underway.
