Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Partick
Partick is Scotland's fifth busiest public transport interchange
and one of the best used hubs in the Strathclyde Passenger
Transport network, with 4 million travellers passing through it
each year. As the regeneration of the surrounding area
continues, the station is set to become even busier.
To meet this expected increase in passenger numbers, the ageing
station has been demolished and replaced with a
new flagship building. One of the main challenges was to keep
the station and its train, bus and subway services running normally
throughout the construction programme.
The new station is now in use, revitalising the busy facilities
and making it easier for travellers to change from one type of
transport to another. Partick interchange is
now fitted with improved customer information displays and
state of the art CCTV security coverage throughout.
The bus stance area at street level has
been redesigned and accessibility enhanced throughout the
station complex. This will ensure easier access to bus, train
and subway services for everyone.
The design and build contract was awarded to C Spencer in July
2005. The building and landscaping work was completed in 2009.
2005 - April 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.
