Clydebank & Erskine, Hospital Gate
To promote the wider regeneration of Clydebank in advance of
some of the main development sites coming on stream, Clydebank
Re-built has developed a programme of public realm works to upgrade
the entry points and main approach roads into Clydebank and its
riverside development areas.
Phase 3 of this programme began in 2006 at Agamemnon Street. In
addition to improving security for residents and pedestrians, these
works have upgraded Agamemnon Street and its junction with
Dumbarton Road and now provide an additional vehicular
access to the Golden Jubilee Hospital, easing traffic pressure on
the access at Beardmore Street.
The redundant railway bridge over Agamemnon Street has been
removed in order to avoid this redundant structure detracting from
the locale's enhanced amenity.
New street lighting and parking bays are being installed along with
the pavements and carriageway being resurfaced. Feature trees are
being planted to enhance the amenity of this route into the Golden
Jubilee and the Hospital Gate development area and a programme of
lanscaping stretches down to the river.
The main contract works began in February 2006. The railway
bridge has been removed, the new hospital access is open and
completion of landscaping took place in February 2009
2006 - 2009
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
