|Larch Street – road damage|
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.”
Please leave this one with me and I will have this attended to ASAP.”
The area is looking shabby and overgrown again and the seating needs completely replaced. I’ve been back in touch with JC Decaux and I have been promised that new seating will be in situ by Tuesday of next week.
The company has also arranged weedkilling of the chipped area but have still to do the area where the old flower bed was and put down fresh top soil. However that if all goes according to plan, that area should be completed by Wednesday of next week.
A few days since I have been able to pause for breath and update the blog – so here goes!
