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
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.
