Extract from recent BAE Systems update:
Welcome to our July update. The site is extremely busy and the lovely weather is certainly helping progress in a number of areas across the village. As we are now in the holiday season we would like to ask local residents to remind their children there is a lot of construction activity in the village and they should not stray into those areas of the village being developed.
- Work is progressing well on the construction of a new link road into the retail sector and the temporary Phase 2 Park and Ride carpark. Access to enable the construction of the first retail units will be available at the end of August and we are hopeful to open the carpark later this year.
- During July we will be undertaking some maintenance work to the road surface on both Station Road (leading to the underside of the Railway Bridge) and Birch Road. Neither road will close but there may be slight disruption as we put temporary traffic lights in place. It is hoped that this will impact Station Road for less than a week and Birch Road for approximately a fortnight. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this period.
- Also this month both Bellway Homes and Avant will be carrying out work on the footpath and roads adjacent to their sites. This is to install and connect the necessary service connections on Slateford Road. Temporary traffic management will be put in place whilst this work is completed.
- Renfrewshire Council have now adopted the northern section of Slateford Road (from the A8 Greenock Road roundabout to the start of 20mph zone). Enquiries regarding this section of the road should now be directed to Renfrewshire Council.
