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.
