Work on an extra level for the car park of Johnstone Train Station car park will begin soon.

The larger facility will increase capacity of the car park from 335 to 415 spaces.

Scotrail have said to ensure a safe and secure construction site, the number of available spaces will temporarily reduce to 104. The 11 existing Blue Badge spaces will remain open.

Scotrail has asked that you don’t leave your car overnight between Friday 19th and Sunday 21st September, as the construction area will be set up that weekend.

As there will be higher demand for existing spaces during the construction period Scotrail suggests that you leave your car at home, get a lift to Johnstone station as the drop off spaces will be maintained – or use other stations (information on other stations can be found below).

The work is being funded by Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and Transport Scotland.

Construction will take place between Monday 22 September and ending early February 2015.
