Getting things done – Clayhills Drive #dundeewestend

A number of constituents have contacted me about the deteriorating state of the road in Clayhills Drive near its entrance.
 
I reported this to the City Council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership and have been given the following helpful response :
 
“The Road Maintenance inspector has raised an order for pothole repairs to be done with a timescale for completion of approximately thirty days. 
 
He will continue to monitor the condition of the carriageway during routine inspection and any actionable defects noted will be repaired to ensure safety is maintained.”

Lighting problem resolved #dundeewestend

I am pleased to say, after considerable correspondence I have had with various parties, the lighting in the pathway from Simpson Avenue in the Ninewells Village hospital housing down to Clayhills Drive is now finally repaired and working again – see left :
 
The lighting had been out of action for some time and there was a question mark as to who had responsibility for this lighting which sits south of the Ninewells Hospital grounds and north of Clayhills Drive.
 
I am grateful to all parties I have contacted for moving this forward – NHS Tayside, Netlach (who manage the Ninewells housing site), the factors of the Clayhills Drive/Ninian’s View development and the council’s Street Lighting Partnership.
 
The path was previously extremely dark at this location at night and it is much safer now the lighting is back on.
