Green infrastructure works to create outdoor opportunities

In extending Cuningar Loop in the east end of Glasgow, Clyde Gateway’s largest parkland project, to a total of 23.5 hectares (58 acres), we have transformed overgrown woodland into a well-structured woodland green space to benefit the local community.
