Three Level 2 Building Surveys were undertaken by Headland Archaeology Ltd as part of archaeological works within the Flood Prevention Scheme, by Volker Stevin.

These surveys were carried out along the proposed development route, within work sections 6, 8 and 9. This focus is part of the Cathcart & Langside area of Glasgow, located within the south side of the River Clyde.

The surveys included two bridges named Devlin Road Bridge and Holmlea Bridge, and also the Flood Retaining Wall located on the River Cart at Spean Street.
