Glasgow Pedestrian Bridge

Richard Rogers Architects / WS Atkins were selected to design the new bridge across the River Clyde. The £40m pedestrian curved crossing was decided by Glasgow City Council.

Their design was titled Neptune’s Way. Their arc-shaped design is to link Tradeston and Broomielaw. The proposal will include new public realm areas on either side of the river.
