A constituent alerted Stuart McMillan MSP to some issues flooding problems at Stoneleigh Place in the west-end of Greenock. A bus stop has recently been installed in the area without a gulley. This has resulted in large areas of water forming when it rains, leading to the area flooding fairly rapidly.
Stuart McMillan said:
“It seems strange that a new bus stop has been installed without regard to proper drainage, such as installing a gulley.
“Blocked drains and flooding hazards like this are more than just a nuisance and can make it difficult for people using public transport.
Councillor Math Campbell-Sturgess added:
“Stuart McMillan MSP highlighted this issue to me and I have contacted Inverclyde Council’s Environmental Services department about this. Hopefully we shall see some resolution of the problems soon.”
