Residents in Fernhill, Blairbeth and High Burnside are being asked for their views on proposals to lower the speed limit on streets to 20mph.
The Reformer reported last month that South Lanarkshire Council was considering implementing a reduced limit after the opening of the Cathkin Relief Road.
A consultation period has now started and will last until June 30 for residents to have their say.
Sixty-four roads could be affected if the plan goes ahead, including Fernhill Road.
Head of South Lanarkshire Council’s roads and transportation services, Gordon Mackay, previously told the Reformer: “As part of the Cathkin Relief Road project a number of complementary works have been considered and one of these proposes 20mph speed limits on various residential streets in the High Burnside and Fernhill areas.
“The statutory process to promote a traffic regulation order has begun and it is anticipated that it will be formally advertised in the Rutherglen Reformer later this month.
“Should the process be completed with no objections being raised then the order will be promoted and signing in place later this financial year.
“These measures are obviously intended to reduce vehicle speeds in residential areas and thus improve road safety.”
However, some residents have questioned how the new limit would be policed.
The traffic order is available to view at the council Q and A at 27 Cambuslang Main Street as well as Montrose House in Hamilton and East Kilbride Q and A.
Anyone wanting to object to the proposal can write to head of roads and transportation services, Montrose House, 154 Montrose Crescent, Hamilton, ML3 6LB.
