Speed limit con­firmed on road

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

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.
