Glasgow’s Trandeston pedestrian bridge over the river Clyde will soon be complete as the finishing touches are carried out over the next few weeks.
Over the next few weeks the protective wrapping used to allow welding and painting will be removed from the £6M bridge. Site workers will install handrail lighting and parapets and the approaches to the bridge will be completed ready for opening.
The seven steel deck sections and six above deck sections arrived by sea in late November and were installed into place in just three weeks.
Enclosures were then constructed on the bridge to allow steel fabricator RBG to weld the site joints and complete the painting. The enclosures allow work to progress without being disrupted by the winter weather and ensure the local environment is protected from the construction activities.
When complete, the bridge will connect Tradeston and Glasgow’s International Financial Services District.
