A speed camera is to be installed on Beith Road, Johnstone where there has been two deaths and many accidents over the years.

There were two fatal road collisions in 2014 and over the past few years a number of less serious accidents.

A school teacher, Frankie King from Auchenlodment Primary School, was killed in February 2014 and a month later, Connor Sanderson, aged only 21, was killed near Johnstone High School after he lost control of his car and hit a tree.

The camera should be up and running for the end of April near the junctions of Rannoch Road and Quarellton Road.

A Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “One fixed speed camera will be positioned on Beith Road in Johnstone in the coming weeks. There have been persistent problems with speeding at this location.

“The aim is to encourage motorists to drive within the speed limit. Renfrewshire Council and Police Scotland are agreed on this approach to enforcement, the camera is being installed through the Scottish Safety Camera programme.”
