I also recently asked about the situation in nearby Marchfield Terrace on behalf of residents and am pleased to say that the City Council has advised:
“Marchfield Terrace has been reassessed at 21 points which is likely to mean it will have enough points to be included in the 2012/13 upgrade and adoption programme once the annual list review is completed in the coming weeks.”
Back in 2007, I insisted that the City Council increase its funding on unadopted pavements two and a half fold to £500 000 a year. This was agreed and is making a real difference to poorly conditioned pavements in the West End.
The City Council has advised me that it has processed Orders for pothole repairs in both Hillcrest Road and Marchfield Road, following my passing on residents’ concerns.
The road condition in Hillcrest Road is particularly poor and I have asked the Roads Maintenance Partnership to consider full road reinstatement works here.
Last night’s Evening Telegraph reported on a number of recent break-ins in Marchfield Road, Pitfour Street, Rosefield Street and Peddie Street, together with my comments expressing concern about this.
Intrusion into people’s homes causes great upset and anxiety to householders, in addition to the theft of personal possessions.
I have no doubt that Tayside Police will be putting in significant resources to apprehending those responsible and the co-operation of any members of the public with information is vital.
I am pleased to report that this had now been carried out with graffiti at the west end of Scott Street removed, street signage in Marchfield Road cleaned up and a Virgin media box, a wall, a telephone box and a GPO box all cleaned up last week.
