Glasgow City Centre
Scour protection works were carried out on the upper
stretches of the River Clyde from early March until June 2006 at
Albert Bridge, the Tidal Weir, Polmadie (Kay's) Footbridge and
The works are essential to the long-term stability of these
structures and were identified during an underwater structural
inspection which revealed scouring of the riverbed around their
supporting piers. The remedial works involved the placement of
rock armour to reinstate the riverbed to its natural level and
provide protection to the bridge supports.
Commenced April 2006. Completed July 2006.
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.
