A737 | Speed Surveys

11 June 2021

Speed Survey


Amey operate the Network Management Contract for the South West Trunk Road Unit on behalf of Transport Scotland. It is necessary to install essential speed survey equipment on the A737 between St. James and Johnstone Interchanges. This work will be undertaken during full closures of the road on Monday 14th June and Tuesday 22nd June 2021. The closures will take place during the hours of 11pm and 5am, each night. Essential routine maintenance works will be undertaken at the same time during the closure on 22nd June. 

This scheme will help to identify potential road safety improvements and influence future maintenance at this location.  

The survey equipment installations will be carried out using full road closure of the westbound and eastbound carriageways.  

Westbound traffic will be diverted to exit the M8 via Junction 29, St. James Interchange, and will join the A726, Greenock Road. From here, traffic will join the B775, St. James Street to travel in an easterly direction through the A726, Niddry Street, Renfrew Road, Mill Street, and Gordon Street.  

Traffic will then join the A761, Canal Street on to George Street, Ferguslie, Linwood Road, Bridge of Weir Road, and finally Barrochan Road. Traffic will be able to re-join the A737 westbound via the Johnstone Interchange on-slip road where the diversion will end.  

Eastbound traffic will follow the same diversion route but in the opposite direction with traffic instructed to follow the A726 at Weir Street in place of A726 Niddry Street. This will lead onto the Paisley town centre one-way system.  

Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance. 

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
