New school comes to a head

New school comes to a head
A 634 pupil primary school by JM architects is to go ahead on a gap site at Hillhead, despite concerns over traffic pressures, delay and cost.

Budget constraints at the council had threatened to topple the project despite planning approval having been granted.  

Glasgow City Council’s executive committee has stated that despite a “slip” in scheduling the school will still go ahead as planned.

The school will take pupils from Dowanhill, Hillhead, Kelvinhaugh and Willowbank primaries.  All of which will close when the new school opens its doors.

Assembly rooms and sports halls will be built on Gibson Street, linked by a covered walkway to 20 classroom areas and a nursery which will flank Kelvingrove Park.

Building work is anticipated to start within the next six months.
