West Hamilton Street underpass
This is one of four underpasses which connect the town centre shops with the suburbs. Located at the west end of the shopping centre, it passes under West Hamilton Street to Mason Road, where a ramp leads up to street level.

The underpass is adorned by artworks on both sides which are glazed into the ceramic tiles by means of a special technique. This work was carried out by photographer Susie Baker and designer Bruce Macaulay of 6247 Public Art LinkExternal link , the same group which produced the ceramic tile mural at the Oak Mall in Greenock LinkExternal link .

One wall of the underpass features a linear representation of the West Coast Main Line railway and includes photographs of the key towns on the route. The line passes around 100 yards east of this point.

The other wall features a linear representation of the River Clyde from source to sea and also includes photographs of the key landmarks along the length of the river. The Clyde passes around half a mile to the south west of this point.
