King's Bridge

Connecting Hutchesontown on the south bank of the River Clyde with Glasgow Green, King's Bridge opened in 1933 and comprises a simple four-span rectangular form, some 21.3m (70 feet) in width. Rivetted steel-plate girders carry a reinforced concrete roadway. The piers, which divide at low level into arches rising from deep foundations, are also of concrete but faced with granite.

The first bridge on this site was constructed in 1901 from timbers salvaged from the temporary bridge which had been used during the rebuilding of Glasgow Bridge between 1895-99.
