Month: <span>December 2019</span>

The Dargavel Residents Association would like to express our thanks and congratulations to all at BAE Systems and their contractor Morgan Sindall for delivering the new motorway junction three months ahead of schedule. It is a significant milestone in the overall Dargavel project and we’re sure it will be welcomed by the local community.

Extract from recent BAE Systems update:

Welcome to our November update on Dargavel Village. Our key updates for the month are noted below.

  • Work on the new M8 junction is nearing completion with the finishing touches taking place this month. We remain on schedule to open the new junction in December 2019.
  • At the end of October, new, permanent speed limits were introduced by Renfrewshire Council on the A8 (Greenock Road). These are in advance of the new M8 junction opening next month. The new speed limits are 50mph from Red Smiddy Roundabout to the new Commonside Roundabout, and 40mph from Commonside Roundabout to the Bishopton Filling Station. However, we would like to remind drivers that the section between the two new M8 roundabouts will remain at the temporary speed limit of 30mph until the works are completed.
  • As we approach the winter months, we can confirm that we have recently re-appointed our gritting contactor, Balfour Beatty, who will be gritting Craigton Drive, Barrangary Road, Crosshill Road, Mosshall Drive, Birch Road, Aberlady Way and the park-and-ride car parks as required.
