Cllr Alastair Majury on Kinnoull Ave Steps

Kinnoull Ave Steps

The steps between Kinnoull Ave and Wallace Rd are once again in poor condition. I have previously reported on the matter in November 2017 and they were finally repaired in March 2018.

March 2018:

Stirling Council has completed repairs to the well-used steps between Kinnoull Avenue and Wallace Road in Dunblane. The steps had been allowed to deteriorate to a dangerous condition where they were wobbly and has caused falls.

This is an important path used by school pupils and other local residents, as this is an important public path that encourages pupils to utilise active travel when going to either the primary school or the high school.

After Alastair Majury local Conservative Councillor for Dunblane and Bridge of Allan contact the council to alert them to the issue, they quickly assessed the situation and agreed that the steps were dangerous and close the footpath, repairs were commenced but the winter weather including low overnight temperatures meant that the repairs could not be finalised until earlier this month. The council has made this route safe by pointing up all of the gaps between the steps to prevent them moving, and reduce the tripping hazard, however they have assessed that approximately 9 steps will still need to be replaced as they are in such a poor condition and beyond repair. Council officers will see if they can consider this as part of the council’s programme for 2018–19.

Local Conservative Councillor Alastair Majury said:

“Although the path has been closed for nearly 5 months, I am sure that residents understand that given the wintry conditions they understand that the route has been repaired and re-opened as quickly as possible by the council.”

I have inspected the steps and taken some video and photographic evidence of the poor condition of these steps, and reported this to council officers.

I hope that despite the ongoing Covid19 situation that repairs can be implemented in a quicker time period than 5 months this time.
