Testing begins for Glasgow’s Govan-Partick Bridge ahead of opening


These images show the first test of the Govan – Partick Bridge in Glasgow and provide an idea of how it will look once people start to use it to cross the river.

This is a swing bridge, opening as necessary when a ship such as the Waverley sails up or down the Clyde.

The bridge is planned to open in Autumn of this year.

We are the main contractor on the Govan to Partick Bridge, a fabricated steel cable stayed opening swing bridge, for Glasgow City Council.

The £29.5million project includes the construction of a new pedestrian/cycle bridge over the River Clyde between Water Row in Govan and Pointhouse Quay in Partick, a connection that will re-establish the historic link between the two areas.

The bridge will be economically, environmentally and socially important as it will create a link between communities, visitor attractions and institutions of national economic importance, and is a key part of the active travel route between the University of Glasgow’s campus at Gilmorehill and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Works began on-site in January 2022.

This a Glasgow City Region Deal project, with funding from the Scottish and UK Governments.
