View of the large puddle on Monday 12th January.
The problem of blocked drains has been highlighted during my walkabouts and in correspondence from constituents from across the Hillhead ward. There is an ongoing demand for more street sweeping and gulley cleaning by Land and Environmental Services to help avoid flooding on pavements and roadways.
As rainfall is increasing, our streets and lanes will continue to face the prospect of flood risks. On 16th January, NASA and NOAA confirmed that 2014 was the warmest year on record for global land/ocean surface combined. Records go back to 1880. The development of the Climate Ready Clyde Project is needed to meet the climate changes we face.
