Car park resurfacing work at Johnstone station

Friday, 7 December 2018

ScotRail is advising customers who use Johnstone station park & ride to plan ahead, as the station car park will be closed for 30 days to allow resurfacing work to take place.

Work will start on Saturday 5 January with the car park set to reopen Monday 4 February. The facility will remain closed for the duration of the work.

Anyone who uses the station car park is asked to ensure they have removed their vehicles by 11:59pm on Friday 4 January 2019.

Customers with limited mobility whose travel plans may be affected are being encouraged to contact the ScotRail assisted travel team by calling 0800 912 2901 (Textphone 18001 0800 912 2 901) or by visiting the ScotRail Accessible Travel page.

The car park resurfacing at Johnstone forms part of a wider programme of investment at stations across the country, with 23 car parks being upgraded or resurfaced by February 2019.

More information can be found on the Johnstone station page.

ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said:

“Park & ride facilities, like the one at Johnstone, have proven vital in helping the local transport network grow.

“The work being carried out will benefit customers in the long term by ensuring a high standard of access to the station.

“However, while this work takes place, we appreciate that some adjustment to travel plans may be required. We are encouraging people to consider whether they could use alternative stations, get dropped off instead of driving themselves, cycle or catch a bus to the station.”
