Images show a new Glasgow bridge being tested ahead of its grand opening in the autumn.

The Govan-Partick Bridge is the latest addition to the River Clyde and it will connect Water Row, close to Govan Cross, to the Riverside Museum at Pointhouse Quay.

Ahead of its expected opening in September, crews have been testing it to show how it will look when people begin to use it.

As it is a swing bridge, ships such as the iconic Waverley steamer will be able to pass through it.

Glasgow City Council shared new images of the bridge on Monday. 

The £29.5million project includes the construction of the new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the River Clyde to re-establish a historical link between Partick and Govan.

It is hoped the bridge will become a key part of the active travel route between Glasgow University's Gilmorehill campus and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

We previously reported that the bridge is part of a bigger plan to regenerate the Govan community, and just last week we visited the ribbon cutting of 92 new social housing flats at 8 Water Row.

The development is phase one of a plan which was approved in 2019 by Glasgow City Council and Govan Housing Association.
