Speed limit confirmed on road
The speed limit on the Cathkin Relief Road has been officially set at 30mph.
South Lanarkshire Council has taken the statutory steps to confirm the limit.
Two traffic orders came into affect on March 29, which also included the new sections of Fernhill Road and Blairbeth Road as well as Mill Street and the Cathkin bypass.
However, the step is merely confirming a limit that was already in place.
Head of South Lanarkshire Council’ s roads and transportation services, Gordon Mackay, said: “As drivers should be aware the Highway Code states that the presence of street lighting means there is a 30mph speed limit unless otherwise signed.
“The notices are part of a statutory process. This process will continue over the coming months and further notices will be posted.”
Some residents have complained about speeding on the road, which has only been open for just over a month.
At a recent Rutherglen Community Council meeting, Rutherglen Police vowed to deploy their speed gun on the road.
