The Police Report for our January meeting has now been received and can be viewed below.
At SGN, we manage the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the south of England. We also provide the gas emergency service in these areas.
We are currently working in the Ferniebank Brae area, Bridge of Allan and as part of a wider project in the area, we’ll shortly begin work on Monday 12 February to upgrade our gas network in Sunnylaw Road, Blairforkie Drive, Glen Road, Upper Glen Road and Pendreich Road. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Bridge of Allan residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come. We always aim to minimise disruption and we will make every effort to ensure our works are completed as soon as possible.
We will be back in touch with further updates as the project progresses.
If you have any other specific enquiries about this project, please call us on 0800 912 1700 and our customer service team will be happy to help.
Stirling Council has issued its January News Sheet which we have attached below. As always it’s filled with lots of useful information and is well worth a browse.
From Stirling Council with regard to the rising number of enquiries the service has been receiving in relation to increasing numbers of potholes on the road network, due to the recent spate of adverse weather.
With the subsequent extreme cold wet weather and snow along with the freezing and thawing temperatures, this has resulted in sections of footpaths and road surfaces to lift and crack causing further deterioration to the road network in places. Unfortunately at this time of year, they do not have the optimum weather for obtaining a quality repair and the majority of pothole repairs will require further attention within a short period of time.
The Roads Service is currently working each day to address those reported potholes by the public and those that are identified through our safety inspections. As a result, there are significant pressures on the service to address these issues as quickly as possible. In order to assist the service and ensure all reported notifications of potholes are recorded and attended to, Stirling Council have for your assistance in directing your constituents to the Councils Report It web page for pothole repairs (https://my.stirling.gov.uk/forms/fill/2000782 ). This will ensure all potholes are recorded and addressed as soon as possible.
Apologies for the late delivery but our meeting agenda has now been agreed and can be accessed below. It’s to be another busy meeting and we hope we see you there.
