Specifically, the short stretch of Riverside Drive’s east side between the Botanic Gardens and Perth Road, is in a very poor state (and – rightly – the subject of residents’ complaints), and I have now had the following feedback from the City Engineer on this :
“I can confirm that the footway at Riverside Drive, east side of Botanic Gardens to Perth Road is high on the priority list and is included in the 2008/2009 Unadopted Footway Programme. Works will therefore be programmed within this financial year to bring it up to adoptable status.”
Last year, I also asked that, at its annual review, the list had Menzieshill Road and Whitefauld Road assessed for priority and added to it. On this I have now also had feedback :
“The Annual Review is generally carried out in March of each year in time for the new financial year.
“At this time all new unadopted footways advised of/identified through the year are added and scored and any new information relating to existing unadopted footways on the list reviewed.
“The annual review is just being finalised and will be available shortly.
“Both Menzieshill Road and Whitefauld Road have been added to the list of unadopted footways and assessed as part of the 2008/2009 annual review.”
