SO essentially if it wasn't for Cllr McDonald dealing with a roads issue, Clarkston would have been brought to a complete standstill.

I'm sure the gritters must be out somewhere, but I haven't seen one past our house, which is a gritting route.

To be fair to ERC, the snow had only been forecast for a week. Heads up ERC, more is on the way!

Could we clone Cllr McDonald and make a few copies? 10 would be enough.

Was at Eastwood Gym Thursday morning 8.00am. Car Park and pavements from main road in were sheet ice, treacherous, very dangerous and near impossible to walk on. Car Park and pavements had not been gritted and/or salted.

Left Gym about 9:45, no change. Went into Council HQ to report this.

Have now been sent this -

I refer to your communication with the Council earlier today on the matter of gritting the public walkways in and around Eastwood Park Campus.

The gritting schedule which is currently in place in the Campus relates to roadways and car parks.

When temperatures are forecast to be zero degrees gritting takes place between the hours of 4.00-07.45.

There is no schedule for gritting walkways however I have asked colleagues to arrange gritting of the walkway from Eastwood Toll into the park today and I am awaiting confirmation of the position.

At Eastwood Park Gym 9:00 this morning(Saturday).

Condition of Roads, Car Parks and Pavements are actually worse !

Have contacted Local Cllrs MacDonald, Miller, Ireland and Lafferty and asked if they can get the area salted/gritted asap.

Have also contacted Cllr Lafferty in his role as Convener of Environment.

Have also emailed Jim Sneddon(although I know it is Saturday)- but as you know they monitor this site so maybe he will read this and take some action!

Hi

At Eastwood Park Gym this morning(Saturday) 9.00 and conditions are worse.

This time the roads were also sheet ice, in addition to the pavements and car parks.

The main car park was completely black ice and sheet ice and in my opinion it was treacherous, very dangerous and virtually impossible to walk on.

It would appear some snow had been cleared from the car park, but as no grit/salt had been applied this had only made the conditions worse by exposing the black ice and sheet ice.

I could see no evidence of any salt/grit being applied to pavements and no improvement since reporting this on Thursday.

Left Gym about 10:45, no change.

Please treat this with some urgency and have the area salted/gritted.

Thanks
