Project background

In 2010, Glasgow City Council was awarded £50,000 to develop a Riverside Management Plan for the section of the River Clyde running south from Glasgow Green at Polmadie Bridge, to the Cunningar Loop. It is hoped that the development of the plan will result in a management framework and action plan to guide the future of this stretch of river, with the intention being to extend the study to cover the rest of the river within Glasgow City and South Lanarkshire Council's boundaries in due course. The work will bring together all the current and proposed future plans for this stretch of the river as well as existing Masterplans for development and Glasgow-wide strategy plans to produce a costed and prioritised plan of action.

In 2011, Glasgow City Council received a further £40,500 to develop proposals and deliver improvements to the Clyde Walkway at London Road and Carmyle. Work supported on the ground includes path surface upgrading, improved signage and entry points, wildflower planting and a new viewing platform on the Clyde. These improvements will also enhance access to the new Commonwealth Games athletes' village.
