Erskine Bridge
The Erskine Bridge is a cable-stayed box girder bridge spanning the River Clyde in west central Scotland, connecting West Dunbartonshire with Renfrewshire.
The bridge was designed by William Brown and opened on 2 July 1971 by HRH Princess Anne. It has a 524m main span and two 68m approach spans and is 38m high and 1310m long. The ceremonial plaque of the opening can be viewed on the railings of the western footpath, at the centre of the main span.
The bridge connects the M898 motorway at Erskine in Renfrewshire on the south side to the A82 road at Old Kilpatrick in West Dunbartonshire on the northern side. The bridge itself is the A898 road. Until 2006 it was a toll bridge.
River Clyde
The River Clyde rises in the Southern Uplands and flows generally north-eastward to meet the sea west of Glasgow. The river is 109 miles long (third longest in Scotland). It was an important river for shipbuilding in the past.
