Construction commences at Clydebank’s Queens Quay
February 26 2018Clydebank’s Queens Quay, marking the start of the delivery phase for the £250m waterfront project.
Engineering firm George Leslie is on site strengthening the existing basin and river frontage along a 230m stretch of the East Wharf.
When complete this will establish a 40m wide waterfront esplanade with decorative railings, opening the area up to the public for the first time since shipbuilding began.
Councillor Iain McLaren of West Dunbartonshire Council commented: “It was quite remarkable to see the scale of this work up close. The Queens Quay project will transform this part of Clydebank and the works at the basin, in the shadow of the Titan Crane, will provide a spectacular centrepiece. I very much look forward to watching the transformation unfold.”
The marine work presages construction of an energy centre for the district heating system with a £15m care home and £25m health centre following suit this summer.

Looking forward to another piece of riverscape being developed. Hope they have a nice eating establishment or two overlooking the river. Clydebank badly needs this.i would also hope that they could extend the Clyde walkway and cycle path to connect with city centre from the Jubilee hospital to encourage people like myself to take the healthier option of getting to and from town.Dumbarton rd is too busy.And too noisy to enjoy on foot or bicycle. Our river is an asset which has been neglected for years. Other cities and towns I have visited on the continent have celebrated their rivers whether they be in the South or North. So climate is not the issue. On a positive I think we are slowly waking up to the Clyde as a valuable asset and as away of commuting. Great for a cycle path as low lying and following the river ... no hills.
