Clydebank paves the way for retail resumption
January 28 2021
West Dunbartonshire Council has completed a series of public realm improvements in Clydebank town centre to improve access to the Clyde Shopping Centre from Chalmers Street.
Sylvania Way, produced by TGP Landscape Architects, pedestrianised the key route with the introduction of landscape islands and seating, new paving with embedded nautical themes and public realm.
In a press statement, TGP Architects wrote: "The project has resulted in a major improvement to the town centre, welcomed by shop owner’s and local community alike.
"Throughout the contract, TGP Landscape Architects in partnership and Civic Engineers have worked closely with the West Dunbartonshire Council and RJ McLeod in the design and delivery of the project, to ensure that the final scheme is delivered to the highest quality and reflects the desires and aspirations of the local community."
The £400k package of improvements was funded by the Scottish Government Town Centre Fund and the local authority.
This is a great time to improve public realms as the public is not inconvenienced by them. The improvements in Clydebank set a great foundation for when life goes back to normality.
