Gateway road junctions

Over the next few years we will be transforming some of Paisley's key gateway road junctions - to make the town centre more welcoming to pedestrians and easier to reach.

The work is part of a wider project to transform the look and feel of the town centre which also includes major improvements to our key outdoor spaces Abbey Close and County Square, which is itself part of a much wider £100m investment in the town to transform our key venues such as Paisley Museum and Town Hall and bring huge volumes of new footfall to Paisley and Renfrewshire.

Where is the work happening?

The gateway junction project will focus on redesigns to four of the main road junctions around Paisley's ring road. They are:

1) New Sneddon Street/Incle Street

2) Incle Street/Glasgow Road/Gauze Street/Mill Street

3) Mill Street/Barrhead Road/Bridge Street/Gordon Street

4) Gordon Street/Causeyside Street/Canal Street

What will the benefits be?

The work we will do is intended to:

- create a sense of arrival to the town centre at the key gateways for residents and visitors

- improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists - by making it easier to walk into and around the town centre from surrounding areas we will remove the perception of the ring road as a 'barrier' and increase footfall within the town;

- build a safer and less complex road layout, meaning smoother traffic flow for drivers;

- improve the look and quality of some of the town's most high-visible public spaces - such as the area in front of St Mirin's Cathedral.
