M74 Extension

The extension of the M74 in Glasgow opened on 28th June 2011. This extensive work on an elevated section joins the previous end of the M74 at Fullarton Road to link up with the M8 south of the Kingston Bridge at Tradeston. It provides a welcome alternative to the city section of the M8 which is so often a bottleneck and will ease congestion on the Kingston Bridge. This fulfils original objectives for the Motorway plans for Glasgow from 1965 and removes the anomaly of the prepared junctions at either end that went nowhere. The section was due to open to the public at 7 pm but was delayed by about half an hour when, with police escort, the first vehicles were allowed through on the Westbound carriageway. The Eastbound carriageway (shown) was opened at 8 pm.

Hillington Industrial Estate

Hillington Industrial Estate, Hillington, Glasgow. 14th Sept 2012

I was surprised to find that this Industrial Estate to the West of Glasgow dates from the 1930s. Together with a Rolls Royce Factory to build Spitfire aero engines, this was originally built as an attempt to promote recovery after the Great Depression following the first world war. The estate, offering units for small manufacturing businesses, was opened by the Queen Mother, then Queen Elizabeth, in 1938. Very little manufacturing now remains and the units are mainly used as retail outlets for the home improvements business. For more information, see Wikipedia.
