Dundee City Council propose to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating carriageway resurfacing works. The Order is expected to be in force for 10 days from 15 September 2020. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in all northbound vehicular traffic at the roundabout over A90 Kingsway (Phase 1) and all southbound vehicular traffic at the roundabout over A90 Kingsway (Phase 2).
The closure will be in effect from 1900 hours to 0600 hours for both phases. Only one direction will be closed at any time. The road will be completely open for 2 nights between Phases 1 and 2 (Friday 18 September and Saturday 19 September).

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
