New construction at Hillington roundabout

Does anyone know what they are constructing just off the M8 Hillington roundabout across from the Audi showroom?

Its a strange wierd shaped building and I can't see any board saying what's being built.

Reckon its going to be a Costa Coffee drive-thru.
There's one on the way to Balloch at Dumbarton - exact same shape.

Thanks for the info. It had to be something like that with the strange construction. Just what the area is missing!

There is a similar construction going on at Darnley Mains near Sainsbury's.

No sign relating to what it is just the usual security and construction notices.

Costa there too i believe Alex. Tagged onto the success of the first Drive thru at lomond gate they have decided t invest rather heavily on this coffee to go malarky outwith the high street.

I am sure the Darnley one will have all the young people fron Southpark Village using it as a regular place to go to meet their friends
Delmont St Xavier

In Canada, especially in Ontario they have drive thru coffee shops, called Tim Horton's and they are extremely popular.

Canadian drivers are generally quite courteous but when it comes to these drive thrus - they would cut you up, almost kill to get in front of you.  I can't imagine that Costa would have such a following here (I would like to be proved wrong) but I personally don't rate their coffee.  I'll leave the screaching of brakes and skids to those who need their caffeine.

I see there's another bit of construction next to the Costa drive thru at the Hillington roundabout.

Does anybody know what its going to be?

Is it perhaps the ground work getting done for the new Ferrari showroom ? It's been in the pipeline for around 2 years and was held up over access road issues with the Infiniti place
Capercaillie

Staying in that neck of the woods, anybody know what the Network Rail works are beside the Paisley line as it passes Ibrox?  Though I doubt it, it seems like they're re-opening the old line that used to curve round to pass behind Ibrox.

Those were the works for when they added the 3rd line to Paisley but I don't see what they could be doing now. The council have just strengthed the old bridges on Edmiston drive and the Subways test track has been cleaned up and the fence replaced
