State of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Roads.
Yesterday saw most parts of Aberdeen grind to a standstill because roads bosses in central Aberdeen failed to deal with overnight snowfalls.
They managed this feat because they had no gritters out at all, that’s right of the thirty gritters at their disposal no gritters left their depot’s till 8 am yesterday morning one or two did work out of the tullos depot we think but with the size of Aberdeen’s road network this is quite frighting and disturbing news.
A total of 16 first buses got stuck yesterday not the 8 that was reported by the local rag in an attempt to hoodwink the local public that things were not as bad as some may have claimed in other words damage limitation but be rest assured we at International Scotland are well informed about mostly everything!
So here we have roads bosses failing in their duty to clear roads despite weather warnings and if that was not bad enough most school runs in Aberdeen have still not been gritted by 7 am today with the sub zero temperatures last night it follows heads should roll, there’s no excuse other than we have huge stockpiles of rock salt but no money to pay for drivers to be delivering it, something has to be done as the snow was only 2 inches deep yet Angus council had all its gritters out and we had virtually none, what’s going on and the local rag needs to start telling the truth locally rather than trying to manage bad news!
