Paisley Campus Internal Road Works

Plans have been approved for a new internal road layout at the Paisley Campus.

With the aim of reducing traffic the focus of the works is to improve the traffic flow and create a safer environment for all.

The following changes are being implemented:

  • The creation of a pedestrianised zone in front of the Inchinnan Building – Bollards will be in place at either end of the Inchinnan building, meaning there will be no permitted vehicle access from the main car park or turning circle, with the exception of access for emergency vehicles only.
  • Improved drop-off system and designated coach parking outside Renfrew North – No car parking will be permitted within this area.

Work will commence on Monday 16 November with completion expected within a 2 to 3-week Programme. During this time there will be no access to vehicles within the Project area (see Site Plan).

Whilst works are underway, there will be no permitted parking within the entire Project area (see Site Plan). Contractors will be managing all traffic movement within this area however, they will continue to facilitate pedestrian access – with no restrictions for pedestrian access to the Nursery’s main entrance.

Alternative temporary arrangements confirmed as follows, for Nursery and School drop-offs:

Nursery

Parents will continue to access the Nursery via the front entrance – this pedestrian route will be maintained.  Parents should however, park in the main car park during the works, parking provision is located across from the rear Fire Exit door of the Nursery.  Vehicles should use the main car park entrance and exit ramps on Renfrew Road.

School Buses

The buses should use the delivery access road next to the Renfrew building, traverse under the link bridge and park at the compactor.

Taxis must enter the Campus via the main car park entrance and leave by the car park exit, on Renfrew Road.

Students can access Renfrew North by using the back door facing the main car park.

Supported Learning

Vehicles should use the main car park entrance and exit ramps on Renfrew Road.

Vehicles can park at the side of the road to drop off and pick up or they can use the main car park.

Students can access Renfrew North by using the back door facing the main car park.

On Completion

There will be no permitted parking within this area on completion of the works. The restricted parking provision and safe turning circle for long-wheeled vehicles must be adhered to – this will be clearly signposted and delineated on the roadway.  On completion of the works, only the following permitted use will be given – clearly signposted within designated areas: Nursery drop-off/pick-up; Supported Learning drop-off/pick-up; School buses drop-off/pick-up and designated Disabled parking bays only. 

We appreciate your co-operation on this matter and would ask that you please advise Students of these changes.

Many thanks
