Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the Tradeston Bridge, colloquially known as the squiggly bridge and is a pedestrian bridge across the River Clyde in Glasgow.

It opened on 14 May 2009 and links the districts of Anderston (on the north bank) to Tradeston (on the south bank) - the aim of the bridge being to aid the regeneration of Tradeston by giving it a direct link to the city's financial district on the western side of the city centre.

The design was prepared by Dissing+Weitling, a Danish architectural firm, with the UK engineers Halcrow Group. The bridge was built by BAM Nuttall.

It cost £7 million to construct and is used by pedestrians and cyclists with no motorised traffic being allowed upon it. The span is horizontally curved in an S shape with outward canting on both curves. (Precised from Wikipedia)

I just loved the shape of this bridge and so did one of the local bird population for, when I came to process the photograph, I noticed it sitting high on the bridge, surveying the River Clyde!

Have a great day,
Bev :-)
