I did this after being contacted by a number of people about some drivers speeding on this stretch of road. These speed cushions have been missing since the middle part of Morningside Road was resurfaced […]

Information I have obtained from a senior member of council staff has revealed that the council spends so little on road repairs it would take over 100 years to resurface all of Aberdeen’s roads! The situation with pavement repairs is even worse. At current spending levels, it would take 456 years to resurface all of Aberdeen’s […]

by Ian Yuill on 5 June, 2017

I am delighted that, after a great deal of pressure, the council has resurfaced Ruthrieston Road outside Ruthrie Court and the section of Ruthrie Road at its junction with Ruthrieston Road. This was in a terrible state.

Yet more potholes reported

by Ian Yuill on 21 April, 2017

I have called on council staff to repair potholes and broken areas of road surface on Nellfield Place, Deeside Park and Deeside Drive. Problems with potholes and broken road surfaces will only get worse until the council invests more in repairing and resurfacing crumbling roads and pavements. My Liberal Democrat colleagues and I will continue to […]

Every time this happens I contact the council’s roads staff to highlight residents’ concerns and ask that the section of pavement or road people have contacted me about is inspected and repaired or resurfaced. The roads I have […]

Council roads staff have now confirmed to me that the pavements of Hutchison Terrace will be resurfaced. The work is scheduled to begin on 3rd July. This is very welcome news.

These verges are in a disgraceful state and […]
