Getting gulleys cleared

A week does not go by without spotting a gulley that needs cleared. If a drain is blocked, it causes flooding and is a major headache for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike. 

 Large puddle blocks pavement on Kelvin Way.

The Council has a staff team who respond to requests for gulleys to be cleared of leaves and mud. A programme of gulley cleaning is developed in response to complaints.

An annual programme of gulley clearing as part of the road maintenance arrangements across the city would be preferable. This is needed in place of existing arrangements especially as we have increasing rainfall and more chance of flooding.
