Rutherglen Reformer - - Redormer view -

Mar­garet Fer­rier MP called on South La­nark­shire Coun­cil to bring in traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures on Green­lees Road.

The Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West MP was speak­ing as it emerged coun­cil chiefs ad­mit­ted that one in six driv­ers were trav­el­ling well above the speed limit to a res­i­dent five years ago.

Doc­u­ments ob­tained by the Re­former showed 15 per cent of driv­ers were ex­ceed­ing 41mph on the north­bound lane and 37mph go­ing south.

The fig­ures came to light just two weeks af­ter a car was flipped on to its roof while trav­el­ling on the road.
