Govan streetscape improvements get underway
December 3 2018
Glasgow City Council has commenced work on a £750k public realm improvement project as part of a wider townscape improvement plan.
The package of works will see improvements made to key points in the townscape, notably Govan Old Church, the Pearce Institute and Govan War Memorial in addition to key routes such as Pearce Lane, Burleigh Street and Langlands Road.
These improvements will serve as a precursor to a promised link bridge between Govan and Partick.
Councillor Susan Aitken commented: “This public realm investment does a number of things; it protects the heritage of a historic area, improves the very fabric of the heart of Govan and puts in place the building blocks so it is ready to thrive from plans to make Govan a more desirable location for innovate and creative businesses and workers, not least the new bridge to Partick.”
The streetscape improvements are scheduled to complete in May 2019.
In the future Queen Elizabeth University Hospital will be connected directly to the University of Glasgow
