I have long campaigned, on behalf of local residents, for improvements to the pavements in Perth Road. I was pleased that the south footway west of Step Row was resurfaced back in January but I have also long highlighted the footway east of Step Row.
I was therefore pleased to be updated recently from the City Council as follows:
All frontagers have been notified in writing, and the works discussed with the two businesses that front this section of footway.
We are taking the opportunity to address a parking issue at the same time by raising the kerb upstand outside No 224."
It is also good to know that the kerbing issues outside the flats at 224 Perth Road are also being addressed. I have been assisting the residents at 224 over many months regarding the noise problems caused by cars parking right up on the pavement - often late at night. Although their landlord Home Scotland has assisted with signage, the kerbing improvements the City Council agreed to at my request following a site visit last autumn will make a real difference to the quality of life for the tenants here.
