Project History

Glasgow City Centre, IFSD


This project takes in the renewal of the riverside public realm on the north bank of the Clyde between George V bridge and Kingston Bridge, and on the south bank from George V bridge to West Street.

A major part of the project is stabilisation of the quay walls on both banks of the river. The improvements to the public realm with walkways and new planting along the Broomielaw make this an attractive area, encouraging people to come down to the river from the city centre.

The project also makes provision for the later integration of Fastlink along the southern edge of the Broomielaw.
