It is part of a wider network connecting Sighthill with the nearby city centre and adjacent communities in north Glasgow.
Weighing 1,000 tonnes and 74.24 metres across, with a narrowest width of 7.5metres (including 1.25 metres of landscaping on either side), the bridge deck is part of a striking wider public realm project featuring 800 trees, 10,000 plants and a distinctive southern approach with a ramp of 210 metres.
The Sighthill Bridge is a key feature of the £250million regeneration of the area and was funded through the Glasgow City Region City Deal, with additional money from active travel organisation Sustrans.
