Clyde Tidal Flood Barrier
Concept Proposals


It is somewhat ironic that the delayed United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 is being held in Glasgow.

Ironic, because the Glasgow Region itself is at severe risk of flooding due to Climate Change. 
Yet no practical solutions to solve this looming problem, are forthcoming or in sight.

The Clyde Region, with a population of around 2 million, is already one of the wettest areas of Great Britain.  Sea levels are already rising and storms leading to surge tides, are forecast to increase in severity.

Plenty of talk has taken place regarding the extent of the existing and predicted flooding problem and Reports and Maps have been prepared.

But Fully-funded Action, not endless Reports and political promises, is now desperately needed to prevent a potential disaster to the Region and the people of the Region!


With the above in mind the following Concepts illustrate two possible locations for a Flood Barrier.

Location 1    -   Protects the Clyde and Leven Catchments

Location 2   -   Protects the Clyde Catchment only, but is the less-costly option.
