As part of our multi-million-pounds River Kelvin investment project, railings and the gates at the entrances to the walkway off Kelvin Drive have been refurbished.

The gates and railings will be reinstalled on Friday 18 August. Due to the size and weight of the gates, mechanical lifting will be required during their installation.

For health and safety reasons, pedestrian access to the walkway will be limited for a short period of time. Temporary restrictions and diversions will be in place. 

Safety is of paramount importance and these works simply cannot be carried out without temporary restrictions being in place. 

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding and apologise for any inconvenience caused. 


What We Did

A power kiosk was installed on the River Kelvin Walkway near to Garriochmill Road and the Friends of River Kelvin premises.

This powers the mechanical screens on the new Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) which is fully operational and will help prevent objects like rags, baby wipes, large plastic cotton buds, etc., overflowing into the River Kelvin during storm events.
