~South-facing view of the Tradeston Bridge.
The Tradeston Bridge (colloquially known as Squiggly Bridge) is a pedestrian bridge across the River Clyde in Glasgow which opened on 14 May 2009. It links the districts of Anderston (on the north bank) to Tradeston (on the south bank) - the aim of the bridge being to aid the regeneration of Tradeston by giving it a direct link to the city's financial district on the western side of the city centre.
The design was prepared by Dissing+Weitling, a Danish architectural firm, with the UK engineers Halcrow Group. The bridge was built by BAM Nuttall.
It cost £7million to construct and is used by pedestrians and cyclists with no motorised traffic being allowed upon it. It uses a cable-stayed design, albeit with a horizonally curved S-shaped span with outward canting on both curves.
