Bridge to nowhere completed

16 Jul 2013

A bridge over Glasgow's M8 which has been left unfinished since the 1970s has finally been completed.

 

The infamous 'Bridge to Nowhere' was left hanging in mid-air for decades after the shopping centre that it was meant to link to failed to materialise.
The crossing, now called the Anderston Footbridge, is being opened by the transport minister as a route over the M8 for cyclists and pedestrians.
Big Lottery Fund cash was used to complete the project.
It will link the city's Central Station to the Forth and Clyde Canal through Kelvingrove Park.
One of the project's backers, the sustainable transport charity Sustrans, hopes the crossing will now be known as the 'Bridge to Everywhere'.
