AS I write this week’s column, the World Cycling Championships are in full swing in the city.

Glasgow has a reputation of being a tremendous host of world-class sporting events, with many still having fond memories of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Far too many of our roads are simply not fit for purpose so seeing the SNP-led council tackling the scourge of potholes and upgrading our infrastructure is a step in the right direction.

However, the problem is that these repairs look to have been confined to fixing potholes on routes where cycling road races are taking place.

That is a real kick in the teeth to motorists who shouldn’t have had to wait for a major sporting event for the council to finally spring into action and get to work on our roads.
