Renfrew Riverside & Scotstoun, Renfrew


The regeneration of the town centre is bringing renewal to the area, connecting the old town centre with the new developments which have taken place along the river. The town centre will be re-established and maintained as the natural business services and retail location to serve the newly expanded town and Renfrew riverside areas.

New traffic calming schemes have been put in place, along with improved lighting, wider footways and new on-street parking. Station Road has been extended from the town centre to the new widened Kings Inch Road, with extensive environmental improvements introduced locally.

These works contribute to the physical integration of Renfrew town centre and the wider Renfrew riverside area.  They also create links to training and employment in the district and improve business opportunities for the retail and commercial sectors of the town.
