Final designs published for Govan to Partick footbridge

Glasgow City Council has unveiled the final designs of a pedestrian crossing which will connect Govan and Partick.

Providing a direct cross river link for the first time since ferry services were suspended in the 1960s, the crossing will span the Clyde from Water Row in Govan to an extended quay wall at Pointhouse Quay next to the Riverside Museum.

Jacobs has altered the design has changed as the process moved into the detailed/technical stage as a result of stakeholder feedback, but also to make the bridge more capable of opening in windy conditions.

In addition, the form of the bridge has been dictated by a number of technical constraints including the need to provide a structure capable of opening to accommodate the movement of large vessels on the river.

A formal planning application is expected later this year with completion expected by 2022.

Public drop-in sessions will be held at the Riverside Museum and Govan Cross Shopping Centre on 11 February between 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00 respectively.
