Earlier in the month, I raised these matters with the Roads Maintenance Partnership and also asked that, given the general deterioration with the whole section of roadway in Glamis Drive, the road be considered for full resurfacing in the future.
HUNTER STREET : A resident contacted me to say that the bollard on a traffic island has been flattened by a vehicle. The Council’s City Development Department advises that,“the street lighting section have recorded this damaged bollard in their defects database and it will be repaired within the next week or so.”
GLAMIS PLACE : Following a resident complaining to me that the drainage gully here was blocked, I wrote to the City Engineer asking for this to be attended to – and he has replied – “I am advised that there is only one gully in Glamis Place. Records have been checked and the gully machine has not attended this location in the past few months. The gully has been checked on site and found to be at least partly choked with silt. As such arrangements have been made for the gully machine to attend and clear the debris.”
I raised this matter with the City Council and have received the following response :
“The upgrading of the unadopted footways in Glamis Place and Glamis Terrace is programmed for August. I will inspect the street name plates and any poles within the next two weeks and organise any replacement poles prior to the footway works starting.”
