Having campaigned for a long time to see the unadopted and poor-conditioned pavements brought up to a good standard, I am delighted that the area of Hillside Road, Hillside Terrace, Hillside Place and Hillside Drive is now having its pavements upgraded and adopted by Dundee City Council.
Back in 2007, I proposed - and the City Council agreed - to increase annual capital funding on the unadopted footways programme by two and a half fold to £500 000. This increased funding is having a real and positive impact in getting unadopted pavements upgraded and improved across the West End and in other parts of the city.
Here's a photo of the footways improvement work commencing in Hillside Road in the past few days:
