Ibroxholm Oval Demolition

Postby Olly » Thu Oct 07, 2010 12:13 pm

Recently noticed that Ibroxholm oval is empty (no lights on, no cars parked).

Contacted GHA who confirmed that they are due to be demolished, but no date has yet been set.

looks like the space left behind after the plean st pulldown could be turned into a grassy knowl with an anchor sculpture,who would have thought it.

Looks like they're starting to strip these out soon, just noticed this evening that there's hoarding being built round the perimeter.

It's another nibble-down.

It's a year-long contract, so the latest end date will be next May. Asbestos stripping will follow the perimeter securing, so any time now.

They're issuing a regular newsletter to the local residents, depending on your definition of regular.

Errrrrrrrrrmmm - bit of a nitpick, but I don't think so - subway runs at an angle to PRdW at Cessnock, and Ibrox station is quite a bit north of the flats. So can a blowdown cause more problems for things underground than for things at the same distance above ground, or is there some other reason for the nibbledown?

Good to know, thanks! Will need to figure out a vantage point for photos, thinking the park behind the climbing centre or the grass next to the billboard at PRW/Edmiston Drive might be a good bet to start off.

I guess it depends on your definition of local too, as I live about 300 yards away and, as always, HG is the first place I've heard anything about it. Admittedly it'll be a lot quieter here than it will be for folks on the likes of Whitefield Rd, can't say I'd be too keen on being that close to the action for almost a year.

I used to work on the Govan Initiative microwave network, which had a bunch of stuff on the west block at Ibroxholm Oval and also the middle block in Kintra Street - now shorn of aerials I notice.

There was a block in Springburn that had been evacuated and "de-windowed" but still had a mobile phone cell site on top - this is because the rent for the cell site was more than the combined rent of all the flats...

everyone i spoke to at the oval flats leading up to the nibbledown(concerge, at tds staff) all said the underground tunnels or one of the tunnels run close to the site, i also found out the order the blocks will go in the block on the right will go 1st, then the one on the left next, and the middle block last!
