Wait­ing re­stric­tion at school

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Wait­ing re­stric­tions are set to be brought in near St Charles’ Pri­mary amid fears for chil­dren’s safety.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil want to im­pose a wait­ing and load­ing or­der on Har­vester Av­enue and Wheat­sheaf Drive.

Par­ents have com­plained about cars flout­ing road rules near the school and in 2014 a pupil had a lucky es­cape af­ter be­ing hit by a ve­hi­cle.

Gor­don Mackay, head of roads and trans­porta­tion, said: “The pro­posed wait­ing re­stric­tions are to de­ter par­ents and car­ers from park­ing on both sides of Har­vester Av­enue to dropoff and pick-up chil­dren at St Charles Pri­mary, a prac­tice which has a detri­men­tal ef­fect on the safety of school chil­dren and road safety at this lo­ca­tion gen­er­ally.

“Tem­po­rary wait­ing re­stric­tions are al­ready in place and this pro­posal seeks to make the cur­rent ar­range­ments per­ma­nent.”

Anyone ob­ject­ing to the plan has un­til Septem­ber 2 to make their views known.
