Morrisons has been told it can't open a 87,000 sq ft supermarket in Dundee because it failed to put traffic lights at the store entrance.

The retailer was legally obliged to put up the lights at the car park entrance on the busy A90 before the £30m store began trading after signing a binding agreement with Transport Scotland in August.

As the work had not been done ahead of the store's planned opening on 1 October Transport Scotland successfully applied to the Court of Session, Scotland's supreme civil court, for an interdict, or injunction, until the lights are in place - which may not be until Christmas.

"We have put a lot of effort into ensuring good road access, which would have allowed the store to open while the ongoing roadworks are completed and it is disappointing," said a Morrisons spokesman.
