Cambuslang sits on a long bend on the south bank of the River Clyde, a few miles south east of the city of Glasgow. One of the highlights in the town every June is its Summerfest, providing a range of street entertainment, an arts programme, children's theatre and much more.
The town has undergone a major redevelopment boost and has regained some of its confidence as a business centre, since the demise of the steel and heavy engineering industry during the last half of the 20th century. The shopping precinct on the north side of the Main Street has been remodelled while the south side of the Main Street was realigned to make it more user-friendly for drivers, parking and shopping, with the addition of more shops. The first phase of this work included 42,000 square feet of public sector offices, a range of retail units, flats and car parking spaces while the second phase saw a residential development with flats and car parking spaces. Both were completed in 2006.
In 2008 work started on a new £2.1 million neighbourhood centre to serve as the focal point for community regeneration in the Circuit area of Cambuslang. The project was led by the Aspire Community Development Company in partnership with the Council, Changing Places Rutherglen and Cambuslang, Communities Scotland, Scottish Enterprise Lanarkshire and local community groups.
Work-wise, Cambuslang is undergoing a major boost with new industries setting down roots in many of the business parks surrounding the town, especially the large Cambuslang Investment Park occupying the former Clydesmill Power Station site. Major players in the area are South Lanarkshire College and Thistle Healthcare.
Housing in Cambuslang has something for all tastes and wallets, ranging from multi-storey flats and small bungalows to old sandstone detached homes and a large selection of new-build developments on the periphery.
Cambuslang has a selection of primary schools and Cathkin High School was rebuilt and opened its doors in 2009 as part of the multi-million pound schools modernisation programme.
Newton train station is walking distance from Newton Farm.
