Last year, around this time, I reported the good news that several West End roads were being resurfaced during the 2012/13 financial year.
All of these have since been tackled, with the exception of Westgrove Avenue. Here, the work was postponed because Scottish Gas announced that a main in the street was to be replaced during 2012. It made no sense to resurface the road, only to see it thereafter being dug up by a utility company.
I recently asked the City Engineer for an assurance that Westgrove Avenue will get its much-needed resurfacing this year and am pleased to advise that he has responded as follows:
"Yes, it is included in the provisional programme to be carried out in 2013/14."
