Pavement repairs in Main Street have been delayed due to bad weather.

The works which were due to take place at the end of last year were rescheduled for late January.

However, stormy weather put paid to the works being completed last week, and are still ongoing.

Independent councillor Ian Murdoch, who has been pushing for the works to take place, wrote a letter to Transerv last Thursday.

He said: "I have received complaints from some of the businesses in Largs Main Street between Crawford Street and Bath Street. The businesses and I are concerned that the work was to be carried out over the last three nights and it has not been touched since Monday night when a small area was dug up and left. I was under the impression that we were getting the whole pavement repaired from Crawford Street to Bath Street including a lowered kerb at the corner of Bath Street."

"In the past I have raised the condition of this pavement, the pavement outside Costa, the Co-op and Wetherspoons and the pavement on the other side of Gallowgate/Main Street from the Brisbane Hotel to Bellmans Close.

"There has been very little done to the pavements over the 22 years that I have been involved in local affairs.

"Why can’t the pavements in a very busy visitor destination, one of Scotland’s best seaside towns not be resurfaced to a reasonable standard?"

A Scotland TranServ spokesperson said: “Resurfacing of the Largs footway was last week delayed due to extreme weather conditions. Works will however be completed over the next couple of nights, with a dry spell forecast.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their patience while this important programme was carried out.
