Many residents have recently reported to me extensive flooding frequently around the bus stop on Perth Road opposite Riverside Place. I highlighted this with an initial response from the council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership at the end of last month.
I have now had a more substantive response from the Roads Maintenance Partnership’s engineer who has been investigating the matter – this reads as follows :
“I have been on site … with a colleague from Tayside Contracts and we are proposing to dig up and investigate the slow running gully at the bus stop.
We are also planning on installing slot drains, upsizing a nearby gully and will also carry out a minor surfacing repair to the carriageway.
This all combined should alleviate the flooding at this location.
Unfortunately due to the issue being located at Perth Road this is classed as traffic sensitive so we have to wait until the 3rd December before we can start the works.
In the meantime I will arrange for the gullies here to be cleaned and will continue to monitor the area until the works have been completed.”
Residents recently complained to me about potholes on the road surface of Seymour Street towards its north end.
I raised this with the council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership and have been advised as follows :
“A pothole repair order was raised … with a timescale for repair of approximately thirty days.”
