PLANS are underway to open a new McDonald's restaurant near Glasgow.

The £4m project will see the fast food giant open a freestanding single-story venue which can occupy 100 diners, as well as a drive-thru, on Borland Drive in Larkhall.

If it goes ahead, the move will create 120 jobs in both full and part-time positions.

A public consultation will be held this Friday, March 10, at the YMCA Larkhall for locals to give their feedback.

The consultation will take place at 33 Caledonian Rd, Larkhall ML9 1EP between 3pm and 7pm.
