Getting things done ... Glamis Road

Around a year ago, I asked that the City Council consider provision of a bus shelter on the east side of Glamis Road just north of the junction with Elliot Road - see current bus stop - right.    This bus stop is well-used, not just by local residents, but also by people returning from visiting Balgay Cemetery.

At the request of residents, I recently asked the Head of Transportation at the City Council for an update on the situation and have been advised:

"The request for a bus shelter at the cemetery bus stop on the east side of Glamis Road near its junction with Elliot Road, is included on the outstanding shelter request list.

Please note that there is no budget provision for new shelters so we would not be able to make any commitment at this stage.  However if any shelters are to be relocated (owing to bus service changes) this will be the most likely opportunity for provision at outstanding shelter request location.  I have cc'd colleagues so that they remain aware of the local community demand for a bus shelter."

I have made the point to the Head of Transportation that, as this has been on the shelter request list for some time, it would be good to see the shelter provided in the near future.
