St Andrew's Suspension Bridge, Glasgow

St. Andrew's Suspension Bridge was built in 1856 to designs by the engineer Neil Robinson and was intended to replace the ferry which transported workers from their homes on the south side of the River Clyde to their work in Calton and Bridgeton. Its most striking features are the Corinthian columns which stand approximately 6m (20 feet) in height. In 1997 the bridge underwent refurbishment, where the original timber decking was replaced, and landscaping and repainting, to enhance the St. Andrew's theme.
