Construction work has commenced on a new education and community campus, in Faifley, which is located in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire.

Members from Morrison Construction’s site team were joined by Councillor Clare Steel, Chair of Educational Services for West Dunbartonshire Council, and Councillor David McBride, Chair of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development, who both broke ground at the future campus.

The project includes the new Edinbarnet Primary School and Auchnacraig and Lennox Early Learning and Childcare Centres, as well as an additional support needs base, education resource centre, a new community library and community facilities to replace the Skypoint Centre.

Also included in the campus will be an all-weather sports pitch and an external Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), to allow students the opportunity to stay active in all weather conditions.

The campus will feature materials inspired by the historic Cochno Stone, which is a large cup and ring marked rock sited within Faifley, which dates back to the Bronze Age.

David Ewing, Managing Director for Morrison Construction Building Central, commented: "We were pleased to be joined by Councillors Steel and McBride for our groundbreaking at the site of the future Faifley Campus.

"This is an exciting project that will provide state-of-art educational facilities for the local community, and I look forward to seeing the works progress over the coming months."
