Index Polmadie

Polmadie (lit is a district of Glasgow, the most populous city in Scotland. Polmadie is situated south of the River Clyde, and adjacent to the Gorbals. The most prominent landmark within Polmadie is the twin chimneys of a now disused waste incinerator plant operated by Glasgow City Council. Also located in the area is a large railway maintenance depot for Virgin Trains, which is the most northerly train stabling and maintenance area on the West Coast Main Line (WCML), since the line runs through Polmadie on its final approach into Glasgow Central railway station. The area was also home to BOC's industrial gases filling plant and main Scottish base, until this moved to a more modern facility in early 2007 to Cambuslang just outside Glasgow, in anticipation of the completion of the M74 Southern link and associated redevelopment of the surrounding area. The area is served directly by the M74 motorway, following its extension into the city centre which opened in June 2011. [1]
