Contractor named for Queens Quay road works

CLYDESIDE Regeneration Limited (CRL) has announced the appointment of I & H Brown to undertake road works at Queens Quay in Clydebank.

The works are part of the £250 million regeneration projects on the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard, with the appointment representing the final infrastructure procurement exercise for the development.

Civil engineering contractor I & H Brown has been instructed to install the main spine road which will serve the whole development area, together with utilities for multi-utility connections firm Energetics, and pipework for the proposed District heating network.

The road will serve every development plot within the site, which will be available from spring 2019 for new housebuilding.

The programme will run for a period of around 42 weeks and will be undertaken simultaneously with on-going marine works associated with the basin and river frontage, by George Leslie.

The Queens Quay site is owned by CRL with West Dunbartonshire Council funding strategic works. Dawn Developments is responsible for development management on behalf of CRL.

Duncan Graham of Clydeside Regeneration Limited commented, “This contract is a landmark for the regeneration of Queens Quay and represents a significant step toward completing the vision of Queens Quay. It will be a momentous achievement to provide access to the Clydebank river frontage to the public for the first time in a very long time.

“The main spine road will provide access to all parts of the development and it’s the final infrastructure procurement exercise that CRL will undertake, a milestone in itself that highlights a very positive and exciting time for Queens Quay.”
