Fort Street – an update

I recently mentioned that I had taken up with the City Council the poor condition of the roadway of Fort Street.  As one resident put it, “potholes … are bad and getting worse and loose gravel all over the place.”
 
I have now had the following response from the council’s Road Maintenance Partnership :
 

 “A Road Maintenance Partnership inspector has arranged for a mechanical sweeper to visit Fort Street and has also raised an order for the repair of the potholes noted with a timescale for completion of twenty eight days or sooner.”

Getting things done – Richmond Terrace and Fort Street

Having contacted Dundee City Council back in March to improve the road surface in Richmond Terace – following complaints from residents about its extremely poor surface – I obtained assurances that action would be taken to improve the roadway.
 
I was therefore pleased last week to note that work had commenced to undertake repairs – see photo below:
I have now also raised with the Roads Maintenance Partnership the need to improve nearby Fort Street, which is in a badly in need of road surface improvement.

An update – Fort Street and Richmond Terrace

Earlier this month, I highlighted the poor road surfaces in both Richmond Terrace and Fort Street (see right) and reported these to the City Council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership (RMP).
 
I have now received a response from RMP as follows:
 
“An order has been raised by the Road Maintenance Partnership inspector to repair a number of potholes in Fort Street/Richmond Terrace with a timescale for completion of twenty eight days or sooner.”
