This evening I visited the newly opened Tradeston or Squiggly Bridge over the River Clyde at Glasgow. Unfortunately, weather was wet, windy and overcast.

The sharp, angular design reminds me of 1920s Art Deco architecture which is quite pleasing. The sinuous double curve creates a wave like structure.

This new bridge provides a pedestrian and cycle link between Tradeston on the south with Glasgow’s financial district.

The bridge was designed by Dissing and Weitling from Scandinavia, cost GBP6.0M and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Together with associated river bank refurbishment, the effect is positive for the area and provides a new amenity for enjoyment in this central area of Glasgow.
