Forrest Street Drivethough

Popular business Andy’s Tyres & Carwash at Forrest Street Blantyre, has been given the news they’ll need to move soon. Plans have been released by the landlord to demolish the existing tyre business unit at the corner of Glasgow Road to make way for a brand new fast food drive through.

Planning has been submitted on behalf of landowner, A12 Properties to build a new fast food restaurant and associated drive through with entrance from Forrest Street. Its unknown which fast food business will eventually be located on the site at this time.

Whilst planning officials contemplate the proposals, existing owner Andy has been left devastated receiving notice that the business he’s built up all of these years is soon going to have to relocate.

Andy told Blantyre Telegraph, “I am gutted to say the least I have worked hard to build my business up

I just want people to know business has been hard throughout COVID but I managed to keep going. I’m not going to lie, it’s been tough but I fight every day to keep my business going and always will.”

This is just one of a few live proposals for new drive throughs in the Blantyre area. We’ll be covering this story in more detail in due course.
