Parkgrove Drive Update July22

Parkgrove Drive has one of the worst road surfaces in the whole Drum Brae/Gyle ward. Robert and Ed are working hard to get it resurfaced.

Ed Thornley said, "Parkgrove Drive was one of the first things I contacted officers about after the election, and both Robert and I have been pushing for results on this.

"I spoke to Council officers, who informed me that there are currently no plans to resurface the Drive in the 2022/23 year. This is because it was recently inspected and given its location and traffic flow, was not judged to be an urgent case.

"It's clear to me from looking at the road surface that this needs to be looked at again. I have asked for a re-assessment and I hope it will be considered more urgent following that.

"The surface of Parkgrove Drive is a problem, not just for drivers but for walking, cycling and wheeling too - especially for children who cycle to school at Clermiston. It cannot be allowed to continue to deteriorate."
