Getting things done - Perth Road #dundeewestend

I have had several complaints recently about the regular extent of flooding on Perth Road outside Harris Academy.

I brought this to the attention of the Roads Maintenance Partnership and have had the following helpful feedback :

"Perth Road as you are aware is very flat so hard to produce run to get rainfall to the gullies quickly So ponding during rainfall is inevitable and is not helped by the Scottish Water sewer being at capacity.

The big problem is we have nowhere to take the surface water to as Scottish Water will not allow any extra flow into their system.

I have passed this to the design team to do some work at the cemetery entrance to try and stop flow from there."
