Their recent visual transformation is remarkable but the area roundabout is still bleak and uninviting. A wee bit of money from Hilton, City Parking and maybe Taylor Woodrow would go a long way to improving the environment


Yeah what's left of the old shopping precinct is pretty grim - I thought the long term ambition was to get rid of it completely, and just leave the three multis and somehow redevelop the space between. The overcladding looks good, but has kinda made the blocks look rather anonymous to be honest.

I have long bemoaned the fact that there is nowhere you can sit and have a drink at the river, apart from the Renfrew Ferry, but this development is not OK. The public realm that was developed on this site is well used and provides an important public space in that part of the city, where it is otherwise lacking. So I see this as a sad case of privatisation of public space. Who owns this land on the Broomielaw, is it Clydeport? Anyone know?

The land belongs to Glasgow City Council and the whole thing is a joint venture between them and Capella Group http://www.capellagroup.co.uk/property_dev.html.

Grtz,

Stumbled upon this website with crayon drawings of a Clydeside Tesco
(looks a different colour from any of the existing Inverclyde ones though).

http://www.clydewaterfront.com/news/lat ... ow-harbour

I propose a button roundabout at the South Street to Thornwood turn, already
at certain times it is a drama there, a future popular retailer will only make it
a crisis. Pop in a few zebra crossings to cool the dafter elements, without
giving £60k odd to Siemens for unnecessary traffic lights.

Best,
MungoDundas

Looks like part of the Loch Lomond and Oban Seaplane sitting where the plane actually stops and starts from. Rather odd why it's just sitting there.

I don't recall seeing too much of it this Summer (now that I think about it). I've seen it up in the air, but I haven't seen it land there (or take off) in months.

You saw it all the time in the Summer of 2011.

I don't think the seaplane runs from the river anymore.

I was inquiring a while back and the Glasgow Oban flights had been dropped.

I think its mainly used for taking tourists on sight seeing around the Islands and what not and is now based in Loch Lomond

Ah, beaten to the draw! I was just about to post the very same.

(And was there an announcement about not having to register any longer to read the full text of Evening Times stories, or is it a glitch they haven't noticed yet?)
