The contract was to refurbish the Class B listed Humpback Footbridge, which spans the River Kelvin, in the city’s West End, and included structural repairs and painting.
The humpback bridge makes up part of the Kelvin Walkway, which runs from Belmont Bridge in the heart of the West End to the old railway bridge over the river.
The walkway has a fantastic history, and takes in some fascinating sites along the River Kelvin, juts a stone’s throw from Glasgow Botanic Gardens.
Key elements of the refurbishment included:
Although the bridge had to be closed while works were carried out, informative signage, including an alternative route, were displayed in the area to ensure as little disruption as possible to visitors and walkers.
The work on the humpback bridge over the River Kelvin was carried out to ensure the continued stability of the bridge as a key part in one of Glasgow’s many picturesque walkways.
