A proposed crossing patrol on Dukes Road serving Trinity High is set to get the go-ahead.
Members of South Lanarkshire Council’s Road Safety Forum are expected to rubber stamp the decision tomorrow (Thursday).
However, two requests for patrols serving Hallside and St Charles’ primaries are expected to be knocked back.
Councillors will be told that the Trinity crossing, on Dukes Road at the junction with Glenside Drive, exceeded the threshold required for a patroller to be put in place.
The council uses a complex criteria involving the number of children and number of cars recorded in the busiest 10 minute period, with a score of or above 100 per cent required.
Officers observed 175 kids and 177 vehicles on Dukes Road with a final result of a whopping 3717 per cent.
Cambuslang West councillor, Clare McColl, believes the crossing would be welcome if it gets the go-ahead.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted to hear this.
“It’s a particularly busy road, especially in the mornings, lunchtimes and evenings so this is much needed.
“The council has been quite pro-active on this and speaking to parents and pupil, everyone thinks it’s a fabulous idea.”
The two requests for St Charles’ and Hallside will likely fail as they don’t meet the council criteria.
They both were for the roundabout on Grayline Avenue, one on either side.
One of the spots reached 13 per cent going east and 23 per cent going west, with the other just one and two per cent respectively.
