These photos were recently shared to us by a concerned Blantyre resident after he noticed the deteriorated condition of the embankment at the side of Bardykes Road, Blantyre.
Perhaps connected to recent heavy rainfall, part of the western embankment, adjacent to the Calder, appears to have fallen away, very close to the edge of that busy road. This is in addition to the ongoing deterioration in the carriageway surface and edge, on a road which is already very narrow.
For assurance, there’s no indication of any current public danger to pedestrians or vehicles but embankment stabilisation works may possibly have to be considered in the near future.
We hope the council are aware of this and keeping an eye on the area.
