Chronology Dates

  /  /1907Meadowside Quay
Act for Meadowside Quay for the Clyde Navigation Trust, a 572 yard quayside between Partick Saw Mills (west) and Meadowside Shipbuilding Yard (east). The river was to be widened by dredging.
  /  /2002Meadowside Granary Meadowside Shipbuilding Yard
According to the developers a new development, 'Glasgow Harbour', will only be a success if a light rail system is extended from the city to the area. The site of the Meadowside Granary becomes flats, the Meadowside Shipbuilding Yard (intended office, leisure and retail developments) and Merklands Lairage sites are cleared and not developed. The sites are a mile downstream of Glasgow Harbour's Queens Dock and Princes Dock. During development the neighbouring cyclepath, the intact solum of the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway, is cleared and partly redeveloped, it being explained that the embankment created a barrier between the development and Partick. The alignment from Smith Street to the Merkland Street Tunnel is obliterated.
