Design Option 3 with the straight road through Colquhoun Square and an increased proportion of green space was the clear winner.
The full result was:
Option 1 19%
Option 2 21%
Option 3 60%
The matter will be considered at the Council meeting on Thursday for a final decision on which Option to take forward.
Helensburgh & Lomond Area Leader, Councillor James Robb commented: "All voters in the Helensburgh & Lomond area had the opportunity to participate in this innovative process and I am delighted that so many have responded so positively.
"This Council has a different approach and as has been shown with this referendum; it can deliver for its residents. The referendum has been a huge success due to the tremendous effort by the Council Directors, Officers and Staff involved and on behalf of all members I would publicly thank them.
"The Council, informed by the referendum and consultation will decide on Thursday how to progress the PRI Project. I am sure all councillors will then wish to see the chosen option taken to completion as quickly as possible."
