Clyde footbridge submitted for planning
July 17 2012
It incorporates a £1m footbridge rocured by Glasgow City Council, a single span structure will connect a new woodland park, masterplanned by Austin:Smith-Lord, to the existing footpath and cycle network and includes outdoor pursuit and recreational facilities.
The bridge has not yet been designed but will soon be put out to tender.
It follows separate plans, also by Clyde Gateway, to connect the communities of Shawfield and Dalmarnock with a similar 'smart bridge', reducing walking time from the former to Dalmarnock Station, which is itself subject to a revamp, to less than 10 minutes.
This bridge has been designed by Halcrow and is pictured on the right.
Subject to approval, work on the pedestrian link could commence before the year is out for completion in 2013.
