City Deal projects along the A8/M8
New roundabout at Orchard Farm
Improving access to the road network for new businesses.
What will the project do?
The City Deal Orchard Farm Roundabout Project involves a funding contribution towards the development of a new junction on the A8 for heavy goods vehicles, light commercial vehicles and cars to:
- Mossend International Rail freight Park and Mossend Railhead
- Former Shanks and McEwan site
- Carnbroe business development
The roundabout will enable new industrial development at these locations.
Land released for development by the roundabout
This project relies on PD Stirling Ltd delivering the Mossend International Railfreight Park. This has Planning Permission in Principle.
The Orchard Farm Roundabout secured planning permission in January 2020.
You can view all the information associated with this through our online planning system using the reference numbers 19/00002/FUL.
What's happening next?
Our next steps are to work with PD Stirling Limited to understand the need for the funding and the timescale for the delivery of Rail freight Park.
An outline business case will then be prepared for approval by our Committee and Glasgow City Region City Deal Cabinet. This is a key stage in making sure the funding from the City Deal Infrastructure Fund is provided for the project.
Our expected timetable
- develop funding agreement and deliver timescale - over 2020
- submit the outline business case for approval - during 2021
- get funding - 2022
