Coatbridge residents rage and demand action against dangerous parking

Coatbridge residents battling against dangerous and inconsiderate parking in their increasingly congested area have earned a victory as councillors backed their calls for action to be taken.

Nearly 200 people signed a petition asking North Lanarkshire Council to place yellow lines on corners of roads including Dunbeth Avenue and Kildonan, Portland, Laird, Eglinton and Park Streets to deter inconsiderate parking, including by visitors to nearby New College Lanarkshire.
