Road surface improvements

Yesterday, I took the opportunity to take a look at the completed road surfaces in Abbotsford Street (east end), Pentland Crescent, Loganlee Terrace and Colinton Place that were recently subject to improvements.

They look a lot better but I have fed back to the City Engineer and Tayside Contracts that the contractor must return to undertake some ‘snagging’ works – for example, where a parked vehicle meant a patch of road was missed.

Good news – road resurfacing in the West End

I have welcomed news that several roads in the West End Ward including Abbotsford Street, Westgrove Avenue, Colinton Place, Loganlee Terrace and Pentland Crescent are to be resurfaced next month.

The condition of these local roads are in poor shape and resurfacing of them to a good standard will be welcomed by local residents.    I am continuing to campaign for improvements for several other local roads including Hillcrest Road, which is in an extremely poor condition.   I have asked for it to be included in the 2012/13 roads resurfacing programme.

The work on Abbotsford Street, Westgrove Avenue, Colinton Place, Loganlee Terrace and Pentland Crescent will be undertaken in the week commencing 16th April – the resurface work takes approximately one day to apply and traffic is managed by a stop/go system during the work.
