A local politician has praised an upcoming installation of a zebra crossing at Phoenix Retail Park.
Last year a constituent raised concerns with Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North following a minor road incident.
He met with councillors and Council Officers on site and agreed that a solution had to be found and that the lack of a crossing on Saturn Avenue which provides access to Phoenix Retail Park.
The Retail Park is popular with children and young adults, with many visiting on a daily basis for the various food and shopping venues as well as the local cinema. It is also popular with adults and families who often drive to the park via Saturn Avenue.
After discussions it was felt that a new zebra crossing should be put in place.
The road closed on Monday until tomorrow while the new zebra crossing is added.
After hearing the news that the crossing had been approved by Renfrewshire Council, Gavin, said: “I was delighted to hear that the zebra crossing is to be put into place. I hope the constituents who raised this issue can now rest at ease that it will be safer for those who live in the area or are passing through to visit the retail park.
“I’m grateful to the constituents for taking the time to raise the issue and to the Council Officers who helped agree a plan to resolve the issue”
