Found this on another site (posted by Hollowhorn)



This is the Paisley Rd on ramp to Kingston Bridge that I remember from right to left across the pic sweeping up towards Paisley Rd
Weir St is the road running middle / left to top and Houston St is left to right in middle in front of the remaining tenements (Where Harry Ramsdens and Travelodge are now) with Houston Place on the middle right.
All the tenements still visible there on Paisley Rd including the Moy Bar ( probably in the middle of that pic) where I had a few underage bevvy sessions in the Snug Bar
At a guess that pic was taken around 1972/73 as the Moy Bar was virtually isolated when I was in there in 77.


Bigger version of HH`s pic posted by Mustang of the P.R.W. On-Ramp just to clarify matters in the name of historic reference.
Kingston Bridge (1970)

XLNT photies people. I remember seeing a road plan of Anniesland cross from the late 70s early 80s with a proposed roudabout and underpass to allow constant traffic flow on the 82.
     I also remember ( what a feckin memory ah huv ) seeing a road plan that cut through the Drumchapel from Drumry Road through the woods between Southdeen  and Glenkirk , across Kinfauns and then up to Bearsden at Pendicle. This was in the mid 70s.

I was looking at this photo & thinking how nice it would have been if the idea had ever got off the paper:


Then I stumbled across this on the 'Glasgow 1980' video:


Shame the idea never caught on. There used to be a pub on the walkway too, I was in it a couple of times, anyone remember what it was called? Anyone have any pics of it?


Wasn't there a pub built there for the Year of Culture, roughly above Panama Jax, called something like Pier 90? While on the subject anyone else remember the best bit of Panama Jax being down the hidden tunnel to the smaller club room that played Indie and Scottish bands music, which during the late '80's early '90's was one of the few places you could get away from the smiley face dance lot.

Now I'm trying to remember when the Carrick had it's mishap.


Which one? It had a few....


This one?



I haven't got a date for this shot at the moment, may be able to dig one up. It was between 1977 and 79 though. I used to know why she keeled over, but not now. I've got a feeling it wasn't something as simple as a storm though, more to do with the tide and the way she was moored being a bit cackhanded. I've got a cousin who's ex-Merchant Navy, he tends to know about this sort of thing, I'll ask him. Failing that, the Herald microfiches in the Mitchell will tell all.


I'm convinced this was actually into the '80's. At least the final time it keeled over was as the council and all the high heidins worried about it for some time before moving to the canting basin in Govan before it was finally towed doon the watter to rot in Irvine.

When she went down it was 1978 We stored a lot of the RNVR club salvage in the cellars of our pub the Wee Manns Bar.There was two events within hours that lead to her sinking that night/day.First her deck was caught under the wharf on a rising tide and Carrick is partially flooded. Also a tree trunk was lodged below her hull, come the low tide it pierced the hull leading to her further flooding and sinking.

That was to be the Maryhill/Lomond Motorway.  Was due to start at Canniesburn Toll and go through the gap between Southdeen and Glenkirk and then go between Heathcot and Beattie's biscuit factory joining up with Great Western Road.  Would have fecked up my supply of broken biscuits!!

Came across a series of very interesting images whilst researching for a dissertation. They are all from the "Report on a Highway Plan for Glasgow".

Frightening how accurate some of the proposed images ended up in reality and also how frightening it would have been had the whole Inner Ring Road been completed.

The sketches posted after the second showing the Mitchell Library were not constructed as is shown, but the ideas were reincarnated elsewhere around Glasgow. All very generic.

If anyone has any information related to the Inner Ring Road and regeneration of Glasgow related to the Inner Ring Road then please get in contact with me. Photos, newspaper articles, books, websites...ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is appreciated as help towards my research.

Hope everyone can enjoy these sketches and if anyone has pictures of what these places turned out to look like in real life, please post them for comparison!

Hi strachan, thanks goodness they didnt get what they wanted, how much of Glasgow would have been left.
Underpasses?? well we know how dangerous they can be at times
Why not try The Planning Dept for information

Bye for now, norrie
