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.
Taken this afternoon from Marchfield Terrace, while campaigning for Alison Burns!
I have now had an update from the City Councilon the pothole complaint I raised about the corner of Shaftesbury Road and Rockfield Street as follows :
“The area inspector for the Shaftesbury Road/ Rockfield Street area has now raised an order for the filling of a pothole at the junction mentioned above and the timescale for repair is twenty eight days.”
On another note, I am very pleased to report that, following new recruitment, the school crossing patroller I had requested for Harris Academy and Blackness Primary School pupils for Blackness Road at the Kelso steps is this week in post – a great result.
Lastly, I was saddened to learn about thedeath of Mr John Anderson of Marchfield Terrace. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
