Titan crane gets £120,000 boost

14 Apr 2011

A visitor and education centre is being built at the base of the 100-year-old Titan Crane in Clydebank. The £120,000 project will provide classroom and workshop facilities for school and community groups and families.

The new  education centre is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clyde Waterfront and Clydebank Re-built.

As well as an open plan classroom and workshop, the centre will have a display and exhibition area and will include smart board technology which will allow lessons to be broadcast live from the Titan to schools across the country through the Learning Teaching Scotland Network.

Eleanor McAllister, managing director of regeneration company Clydebank Re-built and the Titan Clydebank Trust, said: "We are delighted work has just started on the new education centre.

"We are looking forward to it being ready for opening for school classes and visitors at the end of May. This will be a great asset to our programme at the Titan and will boost the number of visitors.

The crane opens for the 2011 season on Saturday April 23. Schools and community groups interested in visiting the crane should contact Cheryl Dyer on 0141 951 3420 or by email at Cheryl@clydebankrebuilt.co.uk
