Important improvements to the Clydeside Expressway (A814) have been put in place to create access to the Glasgow Harbour development and  improve the local road network.  Pedestrians, cyclists and drivers throughout this part of the city will all feel the benefits.

The Clydeside Expressway is an important route, connecting the north and west of the city with the city centre, and also linking to the motorway network and the Clyde Tunnel.  Whilst the Expressway is currently very busy, traffic numbers are predicted to increase considerably over the coming years.

The road works improve the existing road network by creating a new system which addresses the congestion which currently occurs at Hayburn junction and the Ferry Road roundabout, and which improves the overall flow of traffic in this area.  Two new footbridges are on place - one links Glasgow Harbour with Partick across the Expressway and the other is a bridge across the Kelvin.

The end result is stronger links between the communities of Glasgow Harbour, Partick and the West End, making the waterfront, public space and facilities at Glasgow Harbour more easily accessible.  The improvements also bring the train, bus and subway services at Partick into easy walking distance for the people who live in, work at and visit Glasgow Harbour.

Glasgow Harbour is a 130-acre, high-quality mixed-use development on the west end of Glasgow waterfront.  It is one of the flagship projects of the Clyde waterfront regeneration. The regeneration of this extensive brownfield site, at an estimated cost of £1.2 billion has hugely beneficial economic, tourist and social implications for both Glasgow and Scotland as a whole.
