Getting things done ... Glamis Drive

I recently received residents' complaints about the condition of Glamis Drive - several potholes, sunken water drain covers and a damaged channel along the roadway at one section.    

Earlier in the month, I raised these matters with the Roads Maintenance Partnership and also asked that, given the general deterioration with the whole section of roadway in Glamis Drive, the road be considered for full resurfacing in the future.

I have received a response as follows:

"The defective water toby covers have been reported to Scottish Water.   A number of potholes have recently been repaired.   An order is to be raised for the filling of the grooved section of the carriageway and this will be done in the near future as soon as resources are available.

The 2014/2015 thin surfacing works have already been identified but Glamis Drive will be considered for inclusion in future programmes of work along with all other locations throughout the city and as funding allows."

Scottish Water has now progressed the water toby cover repair - see Public Notice from the City Council below:

THE ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984   :  SECTION 14(1)

THE DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL AS TRAFFIC AUTHORITY being satisfied that traffic on the road should be prohibited by reason of Scottish Water repair works being carried out HEREBY PROHIBIT the driving of any vehicle in Glamis Drive (between Hazel Drive and Hillside Road), Dundee.

This notice comes into effect on Sunday 4 May 2014 for 1 day.

Pedestrian thoroughfare will be maintained.

Alternative routes for vehicles are available via Glamis Road/Perth Road/Invergowrie Drive.
