Camlachie Burn Overflow

Contract Works:

- 3 No 10.3m diameter by 17m deep jacked caisson shafts.

- 910m of 2.74m diameter segmentally lined tunnel using our own Herrenknecht open faced TBM.

- 100m of 1.500m diameter twin siphon tunnel using an Iseki Unclemole Microtunneling TBM.

The CBO created additional capacity in the lower section of the Camlachie Burn to allow the development of flood alleviation schemes. The works were constructed in conjunction with the East End Regeneration Route and sites being constructed for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The 1300m long, 2.7m diameter tunnel runs from the Camlachie Burn at the Gallowgate, under the Emirates Arena / Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the neighbouring Athletes’ Village, to discharge via a new outfall structure, to the River Clyde. It also passes beneath the East End Regeneration Route, the new £25m road which links that part of Glasgow to the M74.
