Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 6

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

Old bollards survive along the Glasgow side, but no big ship has tied up since 2009, when ocean-going ships were permanently blocked by the double fin-shaped pedestrian bridge seen here. It's the Broomielaw-Tradeston Bridge, completed in 2009 about 500 meters downstream from the old suspension bridge. The design is largely Danish, although I'm not sure if this should make Danish breasts swell with pride. A bicyclist crossing the bridge traces a slight S-curve, whence the nickname "Squiggly Bridge."
