Getting things done in the West End

A couple of updates :

* Following my raising residents’ complaints about the potholed road surface in Perth Road at the Hazel Avenue junction, I have received the following feedback from the City Council :

“The potholes you reported have been checked and an order for the repair of a number of potholes in the area has been raised. The timescale for repair is approximately one week.”
* I also raised a resident’s complaint about a trip hazard on the road at the junction of Glamis Terrace and Glamis Road and have had the following response from the council’s City Development Department :
“The missing drain lid at Glamis Terrace/ Glamis Road end has been reported to Scottish Water for replacement.”

Latest West End Updates …

* Following residents’ complaints about potholes at the junction of Riverside Place and Perth Road, I reported this to the City Council. I have now had feedback as follows :

“An order has been raised by the area inspector for the filling of a number of potholes at the Riverside Place/Perth Road junction and this will be done within the next 28 days.”

* A resident pointed out to me that there is inadequate street signage for Hazel Avenue – signs are missing at the junction with Hazel Drive and there is only one, poor conditioned, one at the junction with Perth Road. I reported this to the City Development Department and have received the following response :

“The street name plates at Hazel Avenue referred to in your email below will be checked within the next two weeks.

It is unlikely that any replacement signs will be erected by the end of the financial year however those required will be attended to as soon as possible thereafter.”

* I also received complaints about overgrown shrubbery protruding onto the pavement on the north side of Perth Road at its very western end, near to West Loan. The shrubbery is in the ownership of the land-owners, a manufacturing company, and the City Council will request that the foliage be trimmed.
