Drivers were furious after being stuck in a congested parking lot for almost TWO HOURS.
Customers visiting McDonald’s and Sainsbury’s in Glasgow’s Darnley Retail Park found themselves caught up in the chaos in the car park.
The “absolute chaos” was triggered by nearby road construction work, which prevented the frustrated customers from getting out.
Due to the works, the A726 Nitshill Road between Leggatston Drive and Darnley Mains Road is closed.
Drivers were stuck in traffic, some waiting for over an hour.
Angry motorists took photos of the traffic jams and posted them on social media.
And they criticized the lack of traffic management, which made the situation worse.
One motorist said: “Absolute chaos at Darnley Sainsburys, McDonald’s and Costa due to the closure of the A726 Nitshill Road between Leggatston Drive and Darnley Main Road.”
“Absolute standstill, no cars driving.”
A second posted: “Stuck in Sainsbury’s Darnley car park with a newborn baby… This is absolutely ridiculous and badly planned.”
A third wrote: Sainsbury’s seriously you need to do something about traffic management at your Darnley branch in Glasgow now.
“Total standstill, now for 1 hour and 40 minutes, all customers shopping in this store in the next 2 days, NOT.”
And a fourth said: “Due to road works nearby some customers have been waiting up to 90 minutes to exit @sainsburys car park in Darnley. (I’m currently one of them) No sign of additional traffic management from anyone until now.”
Pictures from the scene of the accident also showed cars queuing along the road outside the parking lot while the work was being done.
