The new Clydebank Health and Care Centre will welcome its first patients this coming Monday, 7 February.
The £21.7m state-of-the-art building will offer the Clydebank community access to a wide range of health and social care services under one roof for the first time.
The facility, located at Queens Quay in the shadow of the iconic Titan Crane, can be found at the postcode G81 1BS, and is readily accessible via public transport.
There are a number of ways to access the centre via the following options…
While works continue to the corner and road surface of Wallace Street, pedestrian access to the Health and Care Centre will be via Bruce Street by turning off Dumbarton Road/Glasgow Road.
The health centre is served by a regular bus network. The half-hourly M11 service and “theOne” bus both pass the roads leading to the Health Centre. Additionally, many other bus services arrive at nearby Chalmers Street.
Alighting on Dumbarton Road/Glasgow Road, you can access the entrance to the health centre initially via Bruce Street for the first six weeks of the Centre’s opening. Thereafter, access is also possible from Wallace Street (next to Lucky Break Pool Hall and across the road from Chandlers Bar).
Once on Wallace Street, the entrance to the Health Centre is in front of you.
Alternatively, those arriving at the Chalmers Street Bus Terminus or the Railway Station, can take Chalmers Street, then turning on to Hume Street and once on Dumbarton Road/Glasgow Road follow the directions above.
Car access is available by turning on to Cable Depot Road from Dumbarton Road/Glasgow Road next to the Railway Bridge.
Once on Cable Depot Road turn left and travel along Queens Quay Main Avenue, turning left up the shared-access road between Queen Quay House care home and the new health centre. The health centre car park is at the end of the street.
Drivers using SatNav should note that the postcode (G81 1BS) can mislead traffic via Cart Street beside West College. However, access is only possible via Cable Depot Road.
Cyclists are well served by bike lanes and bike storage is provided on site.
