Is it deja-vu, or did another Scottish Coal lorry overturn today in exactly the same place as the last one did just over a week ago? That’s right, another HGV headed from Scottish Coal’s Broken Cross site in the Douglas Valley to a rail terminal spilled its load at the Poniel roundabout just off the M74. How many more will have to crash before something is done about Scottish Coal’s reckless coal haulage? As many local residents are convinced, something will only be done about it after someone is killed by a coal lorry – one of the more blatant examples of how people’s lives are worth less than a load of coal in South Lanarkshire.
