Councillor Mags MacLaren welcomes new bus stops in Ferguslie

“A constituent had highlighted the lack of bus stops on this stretch of Barskiven Road and asked if I could help”, said Councillor Mags MacLaren (SNP – Paisley Northwest).

A local constituent who has mobility issues contacted Councillor Mags MacLaren to complain about the distance between bus stops on Barskiven Road, particularly next to Whitesbrige Avenue.  Councillor MacLaren contacted council officers and put forward a case to look again at the provision of bus stops in this area and was pleased to see two new stops have now been installed.

Councillor Mags MacLaren added:

“My constituent had complained about difficulties using the existing bus stops on Barskiven Road and I agreed with him.

“I raised the issue with council officers, highlighting the distances between the existing stops were a problem for people with disabilities. I am pleased that officers agreed with me and new bus stops have been installed in this section of Barskiven Road, not far from the junction with Whitesbridge Avenue.”
