Work on city quayside restoration expected to begin early next year

WORK is expected to begin early next year on restoring the quayside and wider area of a Glasgow city district on the south side of the River Clyde.

Says a Glasgow City Council announcement, here, procurement work is soon to begin on Windmillcroft Quay, in Tradeston, immediately south of the city centre and its International Financial Services District.

Says the announcement: “The works are part-funded by the Glasgow City Region City Deal, as part of the £50million allocated through the Deal to secure the integrity of the Clyde waterfront, consolidate the quay walls there, and activate the area.

“This £50million is part of wider City Deal funding, including projects such as the Govan-Partick Bridge and Custom House Quay, to develop the river corridor into an attractive urban quarter that creates jobs and economic growth and attracts investment.”

The Glasgow City Region City Deal is supporting a number of infrastructure projects across the city-region. Both the UK and Scottish Governments are providing the Glasgow City Region local authorities with £500million each in grant funding for the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

The announcement confirms: “A contract award will be made towards the end of 2023, with works – already fully designed, and expected to take around two years to complete – beginning on site in 2024.”
