Crossings related to the A77

Carrying the eastern arm of the A77 across the Clyde, Glasgow Bridge is one way southbound, while its compatriot the George V Bridge carries northbound A77 traffic. The bridge is four lanes wide in its entirety, allowing traffic to 'get in lane' for the junctions at either end.

At the northern end, the bridge starts from the A814 Clyde Street, while at the southern end traffic crosses the A8 in a series of one-way systems round the grid-iron street plan of Tradeston.

The Bridge

The name Glasgow Bridge suggests that this bridge is on the site of the oldest crossing of the Clyde in Glasgow. In fact, it is believed that the oldest crossing was further east, near either the Victoria or Albert Bridge. The current structure known as Glasgow Bridge consists of six stone arches spanning the river.
