New Sighthill Bridge over the M8 in Glasgow open to public

New cyclist, pedestrian and wheeler Sighthill Bridge over the M8 is open to the public. The bridge connects Sighthill to the nearby city centre. The project is part of the Scottish Government-funded Glasgow City Region City Deal. The main span of the Bridge’s structure is made of Cor-Ten Steel, which will result in lower maintenance costs, and also reflects both the area's industrial heritage and the front of the local St Martin’s Primary School campus. Key dimensions 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 structure, with 800 trees, 10,000 plants and a stunning southern approach - with an approach ramp of 210 metres - featuring in the bridge’s landscaping.
