Bus-lane camera is suspended

A BUS lane camera which has been catching out ­visitors to a city cancer unit has been taken out of operation.

In January the camera caught 1339 drivers despite only being in operation for five hours a day.

It caused an outcry from people who felt they had been unfairly hit by penalties, and now just a month after the start of a review of all Glasgow's bus lanes, the city council has decided to take it out of action.

The camera was installed at the Great Western Road/­Shelley Road junction near the Beatson cancer hospital in December last year. Council said it will remain out of action until the result of the seven-month bus lane review is known.
