This was the scene around 8pm last night, Saturday 03 August 2019 as residents reported seeing the tarmac surface of Station Road cracking.
The road next to the entrance of David Livingstone Centre is badly damaged, one resident suggesting it may have been by lightning. Another commented that the heavy rain last night looks to have undermined the carriageway sweeping out the fine material below.
Whatever the reason, this surface is now damaged and dangerous for cars to travel upon. Large chunks of tarmac may damage the underside of low vehicles and the potholes could cause wheel damage. The road is visibly sinking further even when walked upon. Best avoid meantime.
We’ll phone it in tomorrow to South Lanarkshire Council.
