by Ian Yuill on 22 November, 2018

Potholes, potholes and more potholes

by Ian Yuill on 6 April, 2018

Thank you to everyone who has told me about potholes and broken areas of road surface over the last couple of weeks. It is very clear that, sadly, our local roads continue to deteriorate because of years of under investment by the Conservative / Labour controlled council. I have contacted the Roads Department about all […]

I am pleased that the very large potholes and broken areas in Airyhall Library car park have finally been repaired. It is just a pity it took the council so long to act. Whilst this is good news, the potholes and broken areas will undoubtedly appear again – as they have in the past. The […]
