Baillieston, Muirhead Road Viaduct
Baillieston, Muirhead Road Viaduct
Built in 1864 and still taking traffic - albeit restricted to one lane in recent years. Keen observers will note the right hand (southern) pier is thicker than the left (northern). The structure was built lop sided with the low end at the Hangman's Brae side where the road was cut out of the hill to reduce the severity of the gradient to assist horse drawn traffic.
