Thank you to Councillor Clare McColl
Over the past couple of years I have noticed the area becoming more and more run down.
Earlier this year on my walk back from Cambuslang Main Street I decided to pay particular attention to my surroundings.
This was when I noticed the overgrown weeds on footpaths, broken pavements, giant holes on road surfaces, rusting lamp posts covered in graffiti, graffiti covered electrical boxes, faded eligible road signs pointing the wrong direction, broken litter bins, lack of litter bins near the train station and the lead up to the main street where a high volume of school children and train commuters were likely to litter, bent railings, graffiti covered bollards at the train station, broken drain covers and dislodged kerb stones.
Honestly, the area seemed like the land that time forgot.
That day I spent a couple of hours photographing all of these depressing sights, prepared a PDF document in A4 size and emailed it to Councillor Clare McColl.
Councillor McColl was straight on the phone to me that day, determined to get these issues sorted out for me as soon as possible and true to her word, that’s exactly what she did.
No false promises or pointless emails but immediate action.
Councillor McColl suggested that we did a detailed walk around the area so that we could both go through each and every one of the issues that I had raised in my complaint and witness these first hand.
As Claire would put it, “walk the walk”.
I was really overwhelmed by her commitment and enthusiasm into helping resolve these issues and in such a timely manner. My neighbours and I are extremely grateful for her help. Marlyn Campbell, By email.
