Humpback Bridge Appears in New York Times
It’s not every day your work appears in the The New York Times! We were delighted to spy the iconic Humpback Bridge (Glasgow Botanic Gardens) in this recent 36 Hours in Glasgow article. 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 and is just a stone’s throw from Glasgow Botanic Gardens.
Back in 2020 we carried out refurb works on the bridge on behalf of Glasgow City Council. The works involved repairs to cast iron parapets, strengthening of the two main plate girders and replacement of corroded rivets, removal of existing surfacing and cladding, blasting and painting of all steelwork and reinstatement of deck.
