Paths for All are currently managing a contract to improve a 1.3km section of the River Clyde Walkway that was last worked on during the early 1990’s.

Workman and path building machineryA new and innovative path construction technique is being used to evaluate its effectiveness at upgrading existing path networks and utilising the existing path base material. Additional works will include installation of steps, drainage and directional signage. Once completed, a case study reviewing the effectiveness of this new path reconditioning technique will be produced.

This project is funded by Scottish Natural Heritage for South Lanarkshire Council with technical and administrative support from Central Scotland Green Network Trust.

The River Clyde Walkway is a 65km route from Glasgow City Centre to the World Heritage Site of New Lanark. It passes through some spectacular scenery and many interesting and important landmarks which offer insights into the rich cultural, natural and industrial heritage of the Clyde Valley.
