Relief road is the hot topic
The Cathkin Relief Road dominated discussion at the AGM of the Manor Way Neighbourhood Watch.
Over 50 people turned out on the night at Burnside Blairbeth Church.
They heard from Rutherglen MSP Clare Haughey, Willie Clark from Neighbourhood Watch Scotland and local councillors Carol Nugent and Robert Brown.
Members of the group were then invited to ask questions with the majority focussing on the controversial relief road project.
One resident living along the route said it was“causing nothing but trouble,”claiming the landscaping was substandard and the noise created by traffic could be heard in their home.
Concerns were raised about contractors Land Engineering going into administration and one resident said some areas not considered to be part of the road site had been badly affected.
The state of the burn at Glenfarg Road was also raised.
Other issues arising included the settings of the traffic lights at the Blairbeth Road/Croftfoot Road junction as well as the length of the green man at the Cathkin bypass junction.
Robert Brown admitted it would “take a while for the road to settle down.”
Once discussion on the road ended, other topics discussed included house break-ins, plans for a mandatory 20mph speed limit, parking on Crawfurd Road, the future of the Stonelaw Road filling station and even the number of foxes in the area.
