The Richard Rogers Partnership given go-ahead

The Richard Rogers Partnership (RRP) has been given the go-ahead for a £34.5 million bridge in the heart of Glasgow.The pedestrian and cycle bridge will connect Broomielaw on the north bank of the Clyde to Tradeston on the south - areas earmarked for major regeneration. Glasgow council said it hopes RRP's competition-winning scheme will become a key element in the creation of a new City Quarter and there are also proposals for a park, river taxi and nightclub. Designed to do away with access stairs, ramps and lifts, the curved structure will slope gently as it crosses the 100m stretch of water, clearing the river by 6m even at high tide.
