We came to Glasgow by car in the morning from the airport, crossing this bridge.The view was really nice. You can see the River Clyde and the other bridges. The first glimpse of Glasgow for us very positive. :-)

I'm amazed that this bridge has an entry on tripadvisor, its just another concrete motorway bridge although it is admittedly very important to the road network within Scotland. We were last across it just a few days ago. A few years ago I was, with...More

Locals will know that this bridge has been under some form of renovation/upgrade/refurb for over 20 years. You haven't been able to cross from the South side to Partick fly over for years but there are still signs giving you the impression you can. Using...More
