AN SNP MP has given her backing to calls for a lollipop person at a “dangerous” West End junction.

Carol Monaghan gave her support to more than 650 residents calling for support at the Crow Road and Whittingehame crossing amid fears a child will be seriously hurt.

Monaghan urged others to give their backing to the plea for Glasgow City Council to ensure extra support at the “treacherous” junction.

Monaghan said: “This busy area sees traffic speed through Anniesland and Jordanhill, making it a particularly dangerous road crossing for school children.

“I support this petition and its commitment to road safety, particularly for young people.”

As previously reported, mum-of-two Linda Tait began the petition last month after witnessing drivers speeding and jumping red lights while doing the school run.

Linda claims the junction is also frequently blocked by selfish drivers who ignore the rules of the road.

She said: “The whole of Crow Road is hell for kids to cross, really, really dangerous, and there will be a fatality.

“There are lots of rules that are broken and someone’s going to get killed soon.

“We need to keep our wee people safe.”

So far, 659 people have backed the proposal, however, the petition remains open until January 31.

Following its closure, it will be put before council staff who will consider the petition and put it to the relevant committee, where it will be debated before any decision is made.

It’s open to any Glasgow resident of any age with a valid email address.
