Helensburgh Masonry Pier Resurfacing and Lighting Improvement Works

Helensburgh Masonry Pier will receive a £345,000 makeover to help improve the appearance and add to the overall improvements works at the waterfront.

The works, funded by Crown Estates and the Scottish Government’s Place Based Investment Programme include resurfacing the masonry section of the pier and replacing lighting. Work is due to start on 11 July, 2022 with the pier closed to the public for six to eight weeks.  Pedestrian access to the Public Toilets will maintained during these works.

Heron Bros Ltd will deliver the works in keeping with landscaping already carried out as part of the waterfront development. Once complete the surface will match the quality and finishes of the waterfront development project, and enhance views looking out from the swimming pool and gym.

In May 2022, the council granted listed building consent for works to the pier, with additional funding for the improvement works approved in June.

The works are taking place during the summer, as relatively dry weather is required for the type of materials used for resurfacing. As funding is only available for a set time, there is a small window of opportunity to complete the improvements.

Completion of the pier resurfacing will coincide with the opening of the new leisure centre and swimming pool as part of the wider waterfront development.

John Muir Way Art Study

The results from the recent survey are:.

16 responses were received, presenting a range of views on the two location options and on the creative ideas in the report. Comments were made both for and against relocating the John Muir Way start/end point roundel to the new civic space being created at the corner of Sinclair Street and West Clyde Street, and on enhancing this with additional artwork at a range of scales. Comments were also made for and against remaining at the current location on the grassy esplanade. On balance, there was no clear consensus to support relocating the John Muir Way terminus to the new civic space. 

The Green Action Trust, have  made the decision, that for the time being, the John Muir Way will remain in its current location. No additional artwork will be added here due to the risk/limitations presented by the underlying attenuation tanks. The clearest consensus was in suggestions that the end of the pier would be the optimal location for the John Muir Way, if this was restored at some point in the future.

Site Access Road Works (Junction to Tower Place Residents Car Park access)

Heron Bros have completed the works on the road at Tower place junction. Some paving will be ongoing the rest of this week.

John Muir Way Art Study

In early 2021, the Green Action Trust secured funding from Scotland Loves Local to commission art organisation WAVEparticle to consult with the community in Helensburgh in developing a brief for a new/enhanced artwork to mark the start/end of the John Muir Way. A series of online consultation workshops took place in April and May 2021.

Plans to relocate the existing John Muir Way ‘footprints’ artwork, as part of the Helensburgh Waterfront Development project, had been developed in response to feedback from visitors that the current route terminus was difficult to find. The opportunity to relocate the terminus and existing artwork, to become the centrepiece of the new civic space being created at the corner of Sinclair Street and West Clyde Street, was welcomed by the Green Action Trust to provide greater visibility and profile for the route within the town.

The John Muir Way Artwork Study set out to explore how the existing artwork, once relocated, could be enhanced to offer even greater visibility and relevance. The cost for relocating the existing artwork (but not enhancing) is included in the Waterfront Development project.

The final report documents the process followed, ideas captured, alternative locations explored and recommendations going forward.

The report can be downloaded here: https://johnmuirway.org/news/show/john-muir-way-helensburgh-artwork-study

The webpage also includes a survey monkey link for those who’d like to provide feedback on the report and its recommendations. Please note that the deadline to comment is midnight on Sunday 26th September. This date is set to reflect the potential to apply to Scotland Loves Local for next stage funding; the application deadline is 1 October.

Site Access Road Works (Junction to Tower Place Residents Car Park access)
Heron Bros have commenced kerbing and Resurfacing works 7th September to the Helensburgh Waterfront Development Access Road (Sinclair Street) between the traffic junction and Site Entrance/Tower Place Residents Carpark. These works were originally programmed in Phase 2 (September 2022) once the New Leisure Centre, Car Park and Public Realm  (Phase 1) works were completed and opened in August 2022. However as Granite Kerbs and Granite Pavers purchased several years ago by the Council from the CHORD Contractor are being utilised as much as possible within the Public Realm areas of the project. This opened up the opportunity to bring forward these works by 12 months, undertaking the works now would be less intrusive and disruptive to the Town, than the later original programed date when the Leisure Centre and Phase 1 are fully open to the public.

  1. 20/09/21 Road Planer and Tarmac squad arrives. We will need to keep access to site and Tower Place Residents Car Park through the course of these works so will need to manage the traffic to allow the works to be undertaken.
  2. 22/09/21 Lay  tarmac base course of tar to the road outside site. Access will be disrupted but we will do our utmost to maintain access throughout.
  3. 23/09/21 Lay tarmac binder course to roads, same disruption as above.
  4. 24/09/21 complete base and binder. Tarmac top course will be completed at a later date, but we will ensure any difference in levels will be ramped well upon completion until top course is ready to be complete.
