Hi, it's on Benalder Street just south of Partick Cross - the building on the left hand side below.

Was there a tunnel laid under the Clydeside Expressway when it was built, for use if the rail network ever expanded?

It's thought that when the Expressway was built, the line was still there,
reduced to a single line, so they must've built over the line to maintain
access.

My sentiments are as a nearby resident I want the site used and visually improved. I agree with comments on traffic, I avoid Byres Road at almost all times of the day and the junction of Benalder Street and Beith Street is already chaotic, a lot of it to do with crazy commuter parking. When we moved back here 2 years ago and got registered at a Docs, she said she was already complaining to the council about too many people and not enough services. Yet in my youth the city had well over a million peeps and we all got to work nae bother, (on ooor bikes!)
As far as more flats etc goes I for one like the bustle of the place but I think the biggets thing needing sorted is commuter parking, call for Red Ken!!!!


The decision by Glasgow City Council to "sell" public land adjacent to Celtic Park for 1p.!!!!!!!!!!!

Although reported elsewhere by other HGers, I thought it best to keep this thread updated.

Former Partick Central Station booking office demolished

Drove past it today and there's fuck all left but rubble and machinery.

RIP another piece of Glasgow's Railway Heritage. However given the amount of photo's taken of it, hopfully someone will do a model of the station someday.
