Pacific Quay & SECC, Finnieston
A detailed River Clyde flood management strategy has been
prepared by Glasgow City Council. This identified early
action areas where improvements to flood defences are
required. One of these areas is Anderston Quay.
Consultation is in progress on the following proposals.
Flood defences will be required, as there is a
requirement to protect to a flood defence design level of 6.0m AOD.
This level provides protection for a flood event of 0.5% (1 in 200
year) probability, taking into consideration climate change and
freeboard levels. The defences will be incorporated as part of the
improved high quality public realm and bolstered with folding
Quay wall stability
No remedial works to the structure itself are proposed and the
stability enhancement measures are limited to placement of rip rap
ballast at the toe of the wall.
A large public realm area is proposed. It
is anticipated that the spaces will be able to accommodate
built form and stops for Fastlink, both of which will ensure the
areas are well used 24 hours a day. This will also be the
north end of the Finnieston Springfield bridge proposed to link
north and south banks in this area.
It is proposed that street furniture and hard landscape elements
will be of high quality and design, mirroring successful schemes
within the city centre.
Consultation has taken place on the preliminary design proposals
and feedback is being taken on board to develop the proposals
further. The potential for use of the river for moorings in
this area is also being assessed.
Design in progress. Approval and implementation linked to Clyde
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.
