South Anderson Drive and Anderson Drive verges

by Ian Yuill on 11 March, 2017

After being contacted by residents, I have once again urged the Chief Executive of Scottish Government agency Transport Scotland to take action to get the many bare and churned up areas on the grass verges of South Anderson Drive and Anderson Drive levelled and re-seeded or re-turfed.
