I have received a number of residents' concern about the width of the foot/cycle path on part of Riverside Avenue, particularly between the roundabout with Riverside drive and the entrance to Riverside Nature Park at Wright Avenue.
Although the environment management team at the City Council has responded promptly to each issue I raise about this, I have now had an assurance that it is pursuing the viability of increasing the frequency of sevicing of the site which will hopefully resolve this problem.
"I was hoping you could possibly find out if the many potholes that are now on the road leading to the car park would be getting filled in.
They are worse than last year and bigger."
I have therefore wrote to the City Council's Roads Maintenance Partnership requseting repairs and have now received the following helpful reply :
"An order has been raised for repairs to be carried out."
I am pleased to have now received positive feedback from environment management as follows :
“We've agreed to relocate the south-most set of bins within the car park which will enable an additional bin for general waste to be added, thus creating more capacity and reducing the opportunity for side waste and littering in general.
We are going to monitor the bins in the coming weeks and make any necessary adjustments thereafter.”
The lane itself is not a City Council adopted pathway but I have asked environment management who own the grass area if the surface of this short length of path to the grass area could be improved.
“I had a lovely walk up Perth Road yesterday but was saddened to see the gulls had been out in force at Seabraes.
Any chance the bins can be changed to the ones at City Quay which are more gull proof please?”
I took this up with our local environment manager who has now updated me as follows :
‘Just a quick note to say that we are looking into this.
Any replacement bins would have to be in keeping with the rest of the furniture and of a suitable type and construction, so we are looking into what is available.’
‘I wonder if anything can be done about the lane leading from Hazel Drive, near Hazel Gardens, to Perth Road. The area by the drains is totally blocked by leaves and mud. When it rains, the path becomes a mini river.’
I took this up with the Roads Maintenance Partnership and have now been advised that the local roads inspector has since checked the gullies at the top and bottom of this footpath and they are now clear.
Our local environment manager has been asked to ensure the leaves in the path are removed.
