Carstairs Street Highway Raingardens

Carstairs Street Highway Raingardens

Delivered as part of ongoing, phased, regeneration works in the South Dalmarnock area, Clyde Gateway has delivered the latest element of improvement works as part of a wider key routes and spaces project.

The scheme, which was funded by Clyde Gateway and delivered by Glasgow City Council, sees the delivery of enhancements to the existing road, footway and lighting infrastructure together with environmental improvements including a new sustainable urban drainage scheme in the form of highway raingardens.

The raingardens receive runoff from the carriageway, which is then filtered and attenuated prior to being discharged via a new strategic surface water outfall pipe to the River Clyde, instead of being directed into the combined sewer network for treatment.

The improvements to Carstairs Street provide a high-quality direct link between Dalmarnock Station, the River Clyde and across the new pedestrian bridge to Shawfield where the 11 hectare Magenta site is starting to see development.
