C82 Link in Greenock
This article is about the Class III road numbered C82 maintained by Inverclyde Council.
For other roads numbered C82, see C82

The C82 starts at a signalised junction on the A8 in the east end of Greenock and heads south west up Ratho Street, before turning right onto Belville Street. This leads through to the B788, Ingliston Street.


Ratho Street

The east end of the C82, where Ratho Street joins the A8 East Hamilton Street

Ratho Street climbs quite steeply away from the A8 East Hamilton Street, crossing the Gourock branch of the Inverclyde Line railway before reaching the slightly staggered junction with Carwood Street, the C83 East Crawford Street and Belville Street. The South end of Ratho Street is split by a small traffic island at the junction.

Morton Terrace

Morton Terrace, on Belville Street, with Ratho Street to the right and C83 East Crawford Street to the left

The east end of Belville Street features Morton Terrace on its north side. This 110m long row of former factory workers flats is quite rare in that it has sizeable front gardens. The south side of the road at this point consists of early 20th Century detached and semi-detached sandstone villas, plus a short row of mid 20th Century shops, possibly built on a gap site resulting from the 1941 Greenock Blitz.

Belville Street

Apartment buildings on stilts, with garages underneath on the south side of Belville Street

Following demolition of the Belville Street tower blocks in 2013, the north side of the street west of East William Street is now free of any buildings all the way to the junction with the B788 Kilmacolm Road. Belville Community Garden now occupies the site.

The remainder of both sides of the street consists of what can best be described as an eclectic mix of apartment buildings from different parts of the 20th Century.
