Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside


Project Overview

We are delivering the Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside project on behalf of Renfrewshire Council.

Funded through the Glasgow City Region City Deal the project is creating an attractive waterfront area and connecting communities through construction of an opening road bridge over the River Clyde at Renfrew. The two-lane bridge will accommodate vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists and open for passing ships, spanning 184-metres from Renfrew to the boundary between Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire.

Construction also includes a connecting road between the bridge and the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) and new walking and cycling routes through Renfrew and across the bridge, connecting to Yoker train station and the national cycling network.

Works updates will be provided as construction progresses. If you would like any further information please email:

Project Benefits

  • Communities on both sides of the Clyde will enjoy the benefits this project brings, better connecting people to their places of work and to hospitals and education centres, reducing congestion and improving public transport reliability.
  • The look and feel along the waterfront will be enhanced, town centre air quality improved and local woodlands safeguarded.
  • Supporting 700 jobs during construction, the completed infrastructure could lead to 1,400 permanent posts and a further 950 temporary construction roles from the estimated £230million in private sector investment attracted to both sides of the Clyde.
  • It will improve access to development sites and businesses based near the river.
  • We want this project to have a positive impact on the nearby communities before, during and after construction and are providing employment, training and work experience opportunities for local people, inspiring young people into careers in construction and supporting community initiatives. If you're interested in working on site or accessing training and work experience opportunities, please get in touch.

    • Supporting learning for local primary school pupils

      We are proud to share that we recently supported Dargavel Primary School with the purchase of outdoor playground learning equipment.

      Following discussions with the teaching staff, Jim Armour (Contracts Manager) and Gary Redpath (Social Impact Business Partner) visited the school to present the donation. During their time at the school, Jim and Gary attended the weekly assembly where Jim gave an overview of the project and answered some questions from the inquisitive pupils!

    • Carbon reduction has been a key focus when developing our design and delivery methodology.

      Our mission is “to help protect and improve the environment, conserve resources and tackle climate change for the benefit of current and future generations”.

      Carbon reducing activities within this project will include;

      Electric Site Cars
      Electric Telehandlers
      Local Staff – reduced travel to site
      Using soil stabilisation rather than import aggregate
      Recycle timber for biomass

      The project received delivery of GRAHAM's first All-Electric Telehandler. This Telehandler is 100% electric, with zero local emissions of C02, NOx and particulates, leading to improved air quality for the local community and a lower environmental impact.

    • Welcoming the Working 4U Dunbartonshire Training Academy

      The team welcomed staff and clients of the Working 4U West Dunbartonshire Training Academy to our site based on Dock Street, Clydebank.

      We are committed to working with local employability partners such as Working 4U to ensure residents who have an interest in pursuing a career within the construction industry have access to opportunities.

      Working 4U provide training, employability and job search support for residents of West Dunbartonshire and have become an important delivery partner for GRAHAM on this project.

      The visitors enjoyed an overview of the project and a careers in construction presentation before heading out to site to gain a better understanding of how a live site operates. Tom Callan, Section Engineer, was on hand to provide an in-depth overview of construction plans for this iconic project and share his own experience of working within the construction industry.
      Working with Working 4U, we will progress all who attended the site visit towards gaining their CSCS Cards and secure work placements on the project in preparation of starting their careers in construction.

    • Donating to North West Community Pantry and Renfrewshire Foodbank

      Our project team has committed to supporting two local foodbanks (North West Community Pantry and Renfrewshire Foodbank) with monthly donations.

      Formed as part of the Scottish Pantry Network, the North West Community Pantry is based in Yoker and provides low-cost food and wrap around services for local communities.

      Renfrewshire Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust. The foodbank provides emergency food and support to local individuals and families who are in need.

      Various toiletries, cleaning products and food were donated as part of the first donation to the foodbanks. The team looks forward to supporting both, the North West Community Pantry and Renfrewshire Foodbank in the essential work they do for the communities we work in.
