Council's A Class roads ranked top in Scotland

£3million works programme underway


Published: 24 September 2020

We continue to top the list in Scotland for the condition of A Class roads, which are considered the most important carriers of road traffic in the area.

We also perform better than the Scottish average for B and C Class roads and have jumped up to eighteenth from twenty-seventh place in the local authority rankings.

In an ongoing effort to maintain and improve roads, resurfacing works with the £3million of additional investment is now safely underway.

As part of the 2019/20 budget, it was agreed to top up the existing annual roads resurfacing works programme with a further £15million over five years.

Every year a number of factors are taken into consideration when prioritising road maintenance. This includes the condition of the road or pavements and its usage, feedback received from the public and the geographical spread.

The roads and pavements included in this year's additional timetable of works covers a wide range of areas such as Crossmill Avenue in Barrhead, Newton Mearns' Meadowhill and Church Road in Giffnock.

Environment Convener, Councillor Alan Lafferty, said: 'I am pleased to see that not only are we ranked first for our A Class roads, but that we have seen a marked improvement in our overall position in Scotland. Improving the transport network is a vital part of encouraging economic growth and my fellow councillors and I are acutely aware of the importance which many people place on having well-maintained roads. The works underway will benefit residents, but will also support our work to showcase East Renfrewshire as an attractive place to live, work and visit.'
