Relight delight for Cranhill
Cranhill water tower will be bathed in light once more when a revamped lighting scheme for the Glaswegian landmark is switched on by Lord Provost Bob Winter in a push button ceremony scheduled for 18:50 on March 17.

The UFO-like Cranhill Water Storage tower was built in the 1950’s to supply water from loch Katrine and is a well known landmark for motorists along the M8.

A previous lighting scheme initiated in 1999 by Collective Architecture was dimmed in 2005 with the exhaustion of funds.  This time around that eventuality has been assuaged with the introduction of an LED format installation which brings with it lower power consumption, less maintenance and a longer life.

The lighting of the Cranhill Water Storage Tower is supported by Glasgow City Council’s Lighting Strategy, City Building (Glasgow) LLP, Glasgow Community Planning Partnership and Glasgow East Regeneration Agency.
