A project to improve a railway bridge in Glasgow will reach a big milestone this weekend.

Network Rail has said they will complete a key milestone in the project to renew the bridge on Shields Road in the Southside.

Rail workers will work from late on Friday, June 1, to the early hours of Monday, June 10, to place the support beams in place for the new bridge deck.

It comes after weeks of preparation work since the demolition of the old bridge over the Easter weekend in April.

Before the work begins, the overhead line equipment that powers electric trains will be disconnected and lowered.

It will then be put back together when the work is complete.

During it, the rail firm has said there will be no disruption for passengers and the temporary footbridge will remain open throughout the weekend.

However, those using the bridge may be asked to wait for a few minutes when the crane is moving.
