RESIDENTS in Pollok are furiously campaigning for the repair of dangerous potholes, with residents describing the surface as "crumbling" away.

The shocking images, which show just how deep the dents in Brockburn Road are, have had residents claiming that up to 7 cars per night have been stopped in their tracks with the likes of burst tyres.

The potholes - some of which are nearly as deep as the height of a water bottle - are located in a busy residential area behind Silverburn Shopping Centre, which has links to M77 motorway for commuters.

Commuters using the road have claimed the council have prioritised patching the road nearer towards the commercial end.

Siddrah Khan has lived on Brockburn Road for 14 years and the current state of the roads are at the worst level she has seen:

"I drove through the pothole as I was on the left side of the road and did notice the sudden bump. I hoped it was just a bump but by the time I got into Sainsbury’s, the car was making noises.

"When I parked up it I saw the damage - the tyre had been damaged completely. My neighbours all have the same sentiments, they are all fuming."

Another road user said: "It's horrendous. The surface is almost crumbling beneath you.

"I used to travel down the road daily for my commute but I try to avoid it now. There's even a play park at the top of the road where there's no traffic measure in place - what happens if a child trips up on the potholes when crossing the road to the park?"

Residents also told of how drivers also took matters into their own hands by pulling nearby barriers onto the road to warn others of the hazards.

Pollok Councillor, David McDonald, said: "I’ve been working with staff from the Council’s Neighbourhoods and Sustainability department on developing a plan to solve the pothole problem on Brockburn Road."

Cllr McDonald has now responded to complaints, promising to fix the pothole-ridden area, stating: "I can confirm that a programme of substantial road repairs will begin on Monday 20th January compromising comprise approximately 4000 square meter of road in both the northbound and southbound directions."
