 Lincoln Avenue demolition enters final phase
Work two demolish twin multi-storey blocks of flats at Lincoln Avenue, Knightswood, is in its final stages with a 247-tonne Liebherr long-reach machine bringing down the second of the two 58m tall blocks.

Demolition contractor Technical Demolition Services is on-site clearing the way for construction of 50 new Glasgow Housing Association homes to replace lost accommodation, with site clearance expected to complete by late summer.

Both blocks were built in 1964 but have been hit increased vacancy rates and rising maintenance costs in recent years as their popularity waned.
Remaining high-rise properties on the estate have had new windows, roofs and insulation installed by Wates.

Work on the Hypostyle designed replacement housing is expected to get underway next year.
