Gor­don Mackay, head of roads and trans­porta­tion at South La­nark­shire Coun­cil said: “Res­i­dents of Rich­mond Drive have been in con­tact with the coun­cil in re­la­tion to the speed and vol­ume of traf­fic and a re­quest for traf­fic calm­ing was made.

“Th­ese mat­ters have been in­ves­ti­gated and res­i­dents have been ad­vised that the ac­ci­dent his­tory does not jus­tify the need for traf­fic calm­ing fea­tures.

“We un­der­stand that Po­lice Scot­land have re­cently un­der­taken en­force­ment ac­tion.

“Traf­fic vol­umes in the area have been in­flu­enced by the re­cent works on the M74 as well as the clo­sure on Cam­bus­lang Road.

“As a re­sult of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion the coun­cil do not in­tend tak­ing fur­ther ac­tion.”
