Is this is preparation for the northern extension of the East End Regeneration Route, the route is close to the alignment of that old line.


I haven't got a clue.... I think there is a sign telling you what they are doing but I don't recall reading it. On the Carntyne side, they've built a huge wall around the new houses

The new road will follow the old rail line then on pillars over Duke street onto the bigger street roundabout.

Probably. Looks like Todd Street will be closed off at the top and bottom once this road is built.

I think this has its origins in Strathclyde Regional Council Road plans from the 1980s. I can remember the original proposal causing uproar because it took ground from Glasgow Green, which Glasgow District Council wouldn't agree to. Often thought it too much of a co-incidence that the GGPTE Rail route reservations were cancelled at the same time as these roads proposals were launched - using the same ground - e.g the western leg was taken by the Clyde Expressway which at first crossed over it at Partick, and later took away the railway embankments between Partick and Whiteinch for the new Dumbarton Road and Crow Road links.

The end of Joanna Dees too!

Seems like a lot of fuss, building a road high over the railway.... the link road isn't really that handy as it's a 30mph road with lots of traffic lights. You're quicker going round the 74/73

It's on an official avoid list as being a waste of time... 28 minutes end to end during the day none of the lights seem to have any sort of sequence apart from to hold the flowing traffic at the next junction.

I think the 'healthy routes to school' still apply though. You'd need to be a mountaineer to climb the spoil heaps they used to infill the railway!
