Information requested

 

Please supply me with the inspection records for both lanes  of the flyover at Philipshill junction East Kilbride .The records for December until mid January should suffice at this point.

 

Response

 

As the information you have requested is ‘environmental information’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations.  We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA. 

This exemption is subject to the ‘public interest test’.  Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.  We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes.  This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

Please see attached Annex A which is the inspection record for both lanes of the flyover at Philipshill junction East Kilbride for December until mid January. Annex B details the defects discovered on the inspections.
