Expressway Near miss

The subject of drivers going up the WRONG direction on the East Kilbride Expressway once again returns after a concerning incident this week.

Following extensive campaigns in previous years by readers of Blantyre Telegraph, many improvements were made to the sliproads to improve the safety of drivers and lessen any risk of accident.

However, on Sunday 27th March around 11am, a driver was observed on dashcam footage driving up the wrong direction of the High Blantyre Sliproad, before doing a dangerous 3 point turn to correct the direction once on the Expressway itself. It is thanks to the vigilance of the other drivers in the area at the time that an accident was averted.
