CLYDESIDE Regeneration Limited has announced it has appointed a contractor to undertake marine works at Queens Quay, the £250million regeneration project on the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard in Clydebank.

Civil engineering company George Leslie has been appointed to carry out all marine works associated with the basin and river frontage. Included in this is the creation of a 40m-wide esplanade river frontage that will, for the first time since shipbuilding began in this area, give the public access to the river and in particular the basin that built the Three Queens ships.

The Queens Quay site is owned by Clydeside Regeneration Limited with West Dunbartonshire Council part funding the development. Dawn Urban Regeneration Ltd is the development partner and is working in partnership with the council to deliver the development.

John McNaught, of George Leslie, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the marine works package. We are looking forward to make a positive impact through the delivery of this project.””
