Glasgow: Polmadie Bridge Diversion, north bank – upgrade

Polmadie Bridge diversion

Glasgow City Council have informed us that the diversion route for the closed Polmadie Bridge, on the north side of the Clyde in Glasgow Green, is to be upgraded.  The rough, narrow track down the bank from the car park is to be surfaced to a width of 3m with tarmac.  There is also the potential of a planter being placed at the top of the bank to prevent car parking blocking the track.

The placing of this tarmac, which, we are told, will happen soon, does mean that there must be a diversion of this diversion for a short while!  The preferred route is option 1 and we hope this is the one that will go ahead.

We are grateful to one of the Sustrans embedded employees within the City Council for discussing this with us.
