Heavy earth movers and diggers are currently down in South Street moving earth on the site of the proposed Tesco store.TescoSouthStreet_06

The development (Ref No 11/01264/DC), which was given planning approval in October 2012, will see a new supermarket built along with associated works including access formation and road works/improvements.

There will also be a riverside walkway for pedestrians and cyclists, public realm works, landscaping (hard and soft), service yard and a dot com shopping delivery facility, petrol filling station and car parking. The site is bounded by Sawmill Road, South Street and Merklands Quay Glasgow.

If you cycle or walk on this route please take extra care due to the additional heavy vehicle movements!

The site plan can be seen below and full details of the planning application can be viewed on the Council’s online planning portal.
