McDonald’s driv-thrus in East Kilbride are set to reopen today (Wednesday, June 3).

East Kilbride Queensway and Lees Burn Court will open up at 11am this morning according to the McDonald’s restaurant locator on its website.

Returning to trading after the coronavirus shutdown the fast food favourite will  announce which Golden Arches branch is reopening only on the morning that service is resuming in order to manage demand.

All drive-thrus at its 924 restaurants in the UK and Ireland will open by June 4.

The chain will also add 75 restaurants to McDelivery via Uber Eats or Just Eat.

The company said it was working with local authorities and police in the run-up to the reopenings after almost two months’ closure.

McDonald’s, along with its competitors Burger King, KFC and Nando’s, have been trialling phased reopenings of their restaurants, with increased safety measures.

In order to allow for social distancing, there will be fewer employees in kitchens and service areas.

There will also be a limited menu -- no breakfast, wrap or milkshakes - with reduced hours in place (11am-10pm).

Customers are being asked to limit their spend to £25 and use contactless payment.

A spokesman for McDonald’s said: “Our teams are adjusting to new safety and hygiene procedures, which will help them to work safely and social distance; we appreciate your continued patience.

“We are delighted to be returning to communities across the UK and Ireland.”

Other drive-thru locations in Lanarkshire set to open this morning include: Wishaw, Hamilton, Airdrie, Coatbridge, and Bellshill.

As McDonald's reopened up yesterday at locations throughout Scotland massive queues formed with some police helping to patrol.
