Dear Ed­i­tor,

The state of the roads in East Kil­bride is dread­ful.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil have had the best part of a fort­night to get this sorted and we as mo­torists in this town see noth­ing but potholes get­ting big­ger.

A prime ex­am­ple is Lick­priv­ick Road in Green­hills at the en­trance to Troon Av­enue. This is get­ting to the stage that I reckon you will find it hard to drive on that sur­face within a fort­night.

The en­trance to Troon Av­enue is vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to drive in with­out caus­ing se­ri­ous dam­age to your car and potholes are get­ting big­ger by the day.

I know other roads in the town are prob­a­bly the same but it is dread­ful that SLC are not act­ing on this as it’s re­ally be­com­ing an emer­gency.

A lot of anger is build­ing in Green­hills and sur­round­ing ar­eas be­cause of this and it’s high time it was sorted.

It is only a mat­ter of time be­fore some­one has an ac­ci­dent or wrecks their cars due to the de­fects on the road.

I know the weather has been dread­ful, but they have spent a lot of money up­grad­ing roads in EK over the past cou­ple of years and this shows that they must have gone with the cheaper op­tion, the way the roads are break­ing up. A ma­jor re­pair on most roads is now needed in these ar­eas and that af­fects us, the tax­payer, to which I say: it is not our fault! James Bowyer, via email
