Security bollards have been installed as part of a £1.6 million regeneration of a famous Glasgow landmark.

Govan, which is one of Glasgow's oldest districts, stretching as far back as to the sixth century, has seen its square and pavements replaced with Caithness stone, a boundary wall removed to improve the view of the Cylde and the Saturday market area improved, reported the Evening Times.

The security bollards are part of a £700,000 investment that has also seen new street lights, stainless steel benches, bins, bike racks and trees planted around the area.

Deirdre Gaughan, chairman of Central Govan Action Plan, told the newspaper that this represented being "one step closer" to central Govan becoming "attractive, vibrant and prosperous".

She added: "It is more than appropriate that we take the time as a community to celebrate each bit of success and it is made all the better by knowing we have further investment to look forward to."

A street party was held to mark the official reopening of the landmark.

Govan was originally an agricultural and fishing village before becoming known as a world leader in the ship-building industry.
