As part of its drive to transform Paisley town centre, Renfrewshire Council has developed plans to enhance walking, cycling and public transport connections for residents, businesses and visitors on Causeyside Street.

The council is looking to provide a safe, appealing cycle connection between Paisley Canal and Paisley Gilmour train stations, which connects into the popular National Cycle Route 7 which heads west to Johnstone and Ayr and east to Glasgow.

The council says that the proposed improvements would create a more attractive, safer public space for active travel and would provide convenient connections to public transport facilities while ensuring it retains the reflection of the town’s heritage in the bespoke pavements and carved references to Paisley’s industrial past.

The council is sharing the concept designs and asking for feedback through an online survey at

Members of the project team will be visiting all businesses on Causeyside Street in-person to discuss the plans and answer any questions, as well as being available for the public every Wednesday and Friday from 12pm-2pm at 5A High Street, Paisley during the engagement period (11 July – 7 August).
