Councillors hold talks with transport chiefs
Councillors have this week held “constructive” talks with transport chiefs as they aim to address locals’ concerns about cycle lanes.
Cambuslang councillor Richard Tullett said elected representatives in the town had held a meeting with South Lanarkshire Council officials after being inundated with complaints from locals.
He told the Reformer: “We held constructive discussions with the roads and transportation department in which we were able to raise all the concerns which local residents have raised with us regarding consultation with the general public; the increasing width of the cycle lanes compared to what was put in place last year; the use of narrower streets by drivers who are seeking to avoid using Cambuslang Main Street; and the ongoing monitoring that will be needed to tackle the additional waiting times that drivers have faced in the last few weeks.
“We were also advised that new traffic lights are to be installed on the Main Street that should be more responsive to traffic building up and are therefore aimed at improving traffic flow, particularly at peak times.
“There will also be contact made with local businesses to discuss the impact on them.”
