Previously, in their 2019/20 budget, the council committed an additional £15m capital investment for road infrastructure enhancements over the following five years.


According to the council, during the first four years of this additional investment, to the end of 2022/23, a total of 134 road and 44 pavement resurfacing projects have been completed.


They also say the prioritisation of the resurfacing projects has taken a range of factors into account including the structural condition of the road or pavement, its usage, cost of maintenance for the last three years, number of complaints received and geographical spread.


Earlier this year, the council outlined their plans to continue the extra capital investment which was set to finish next year.


The improvement project will be extended for a further five years, starting in 2024/25, with an investment of £3.5m each year on upgrading roads and pavements.


he 13 pavements which are set to be resurfaced are:

  • Fraser Avenue (part), Newton Mearns

  • Glen Doll Road (part), Neilston

  • Glen Finlet Crescent (part), Neilston

  • Lomond Drive (part), Newton Mearns

  • Douglas Avenue, Giffnock

  • Merryton Avenue, Giffnock

  • Heathside Road, Giffnock

  • Southlea Avenue, Thornliebank

  • Carmunnock Road (Laurel Grove to Council boundary), Busby

  • Stamperland Gardens (Clarkston Road to Randolph Drive), Clarkston

  • Broomfield Avenue (Castlehill Avenue to Castleton Drive), Newton Mearns

Councillor Danny Devlin, Convener for Housing and Environment, said: “High-quality roads are a key priority for our residents, so I’m delighted that a further 53 roads and pavements are set to benefit from improvements over the next year.


“It’s great that 178 road and pavement resurfacing projects have been completed since the additional capital investment began in 2019.



“It’s clear they have made a real difference to local communities, as we aim to continue to improve our road network year on year.


“I’m looking forward to seeing the upgrades completed this year.”
