PLANNING approval has been given for the new Govan to Partick footbridge
The cable-stayed swing bridge will span between Water Row in Govan and Pointhouse Quay at the Riverside Museum.
It’s hoped construction will begin early next year and take about 70 weeks.
It will be 115 metres long with a rotating central span of 68 metres, making it one of the longest opening footbridges in Europe.
The deck will be eight metres wide, a surface of six metres between parapets providing enough space for use by pedestrians and cyclists.
The bridge, funded through the Glasgow City Region City Deal, will form part of a high-quality, active travel route between communities, academic institutions, business and visitor attractions on both banks of the river.
