Getting this done ... lining works across the West End

On behalf of constituents, I recently raised the need to have white lining renewed at several locations across the West End:

* Junction of Saggar Street with City Road :   The council has responded - "The Road Maintenance Partnership inspector has advised that these junction lines were re-done 17-1-13."

* Give way lines at the junction of Perth Road at Riverside Drive (north of the Botanic Garden) :   The council has now advised - "For information, the Road Maintenance Partnership inspector has advised that these give way lines on Perth Road at the junction of Riverside Drive have now been re-painted."

* Junction lining of both Abbotsford Street and Abbotsford Place with Peddie Street :    The council has responded - "The Road Maintenance Partnership inspector has included the worn junction lining in Abbotsford Place and Street in the next lining order and this will be done weather permitting as soon as resources are available and previously identified priorities have been dealt with."

I also queried with the City Council's Road Maintenance Partnership why the promised yellow box relining at the junction of Logie Street with City Road has still not been carried out.     The response is as follows and hopefully means this lengthy delay in having the yellow box repainted is coming to an end:

"The proposed patching to be done at the City Road/ Logie Street was further delayed because of planned works on Ancrum Road by Scottish Water. These works have now been carried out and the carriageway patching and subsequent re-lining of these junctions, is provisionally programmed for early February 2013."
