Safety bollards for street where boy fatally hit by van
Lennon Toland, five, was walking home on Dalness Street, Glasgow, when he was struck.
A street where a five-year-old boy was knocked down and killed will be lined with bollards to improve safety.
Lennon Toland was walking home from school with his father when a van mounted the kerb and hit him on Dalness Street in Tollcross, Glasgow.
The driver was attempting to park in an area of waste ground at the side of the road reportedly used by a local business in September last year.
Bollards will now be installed along the street to prevent unsafe parking.
Lennon's mother Leanne said: "It's good news but it's a shame it's taken a tragedy to make them take action"
Lennon's family want to build a swing park on the waste ground in his memory, an idea backed by almost 8000 people in an online petition.
A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: "A number of bollards will be installed along the footway on Dalness Street following complaints of inconsiderate parking.
"The work is expected to be complete before the end of the month."
