Getting things done - Glamis Road #dundeewestend

The southern section of Glamis Road was "surface dressed" some time ago to prolong the life of the road surface.

To be honest I am not a fan of surface dressing (tar and chippings on top of the existing surface) and proposed at the budget this year an increase in the roads capital programme of £2 million this year, which could have been funded and would have increased the amount of "real" quality resurfacing.    Sadly I did not win the vote at the budget but continue to campaign for greater funding for roads and pavements improvements.

Many residents have contacted me in recent months about the surface dressed surface of Glamis Road, south of the roundabout with Blackness Road and Glamis Drive.    

One resident recently described the surface as "dreadful" and I again raised this with the City Council's Roads Maintenance Partnership.

The partnership's Senior Engineer has now sent me the following helpful feedback :

"At the tail end of this month, I will be looking over next years carriageway programme.

I will have a look at the section you have highlighted

If it is indeed "dreadful " then I am sure it will move up the programme."
