TREES which sat next to the wall on Monument Road have been felled in a bid to save it from collapsing.

But there are still fears over the condition of the wall which seems to have been significantly damaged over the years.

Locals feel that it needs replaced. The issue was addressed at an Alloway and Doonfoot community council meeting recently.

Brendan Ferguson, said: "The wall repairs show that it is in a tender condition. It is coping at the moment but it seems that the wall as been pushed out but is not in danger of coming down right now. It will need to be repaired though."

Ian Ferguson, added: "The issue is that it could collapse at some point."

Felling work was carried out from Monday, April 24 until Friday, April 28. The road was closed during this period to allow the project to be completed. 

Fiona Ross, of South Ayrshire Council had previously stated to the community council that the work could have taken up to four weeks to complete.

Ms Ross also mentioned that the damaged wall areas have been inspected by Engineers and essential repairs are necessary and works will be put forward for tendering process.
