Finnieston Tunnel : Northern Portal
Finnieston Tunnel : Northern Portal
This picture is taken from the Finnieston Crane, looking at the entrance to the (then) pedestrian walkway under the River Clyde. Although in a state of disrepair, a number of hydraulic lifts took horses and carts silently under the river bed, via a roadway, to a similar portal on the southern side of the river. The lifts fell into disrepair, but pedestrian access was permitted until 1980, when the building was totally remodelled to become a range of restaurants, utilising the old building shell. There is no longer public access to the pedestrian tunnel; however, as this contains an important water main belonging to Scottish Water, access remains in case of maintenance.
