It's an ugly concrete bridge, but it keeps the traffic flowing (mostly), and Glasgow would grind to a halt without it. It opened in the early 70's, and it has always seemed to be being repaired for as long as I can remember. It is...More

Glasgow is a major headache to traverse from south to north as we travel onwards to Stirling, except that the M8 motorway runs through the centre of the city, so easing the stress of navigating through a major city. The Kingston Bridge sweeps you across...More

We came to Glasgow by car in the morning from the airport, crossing this bridge.The view was really nice. You can see the River Clyde and the other bridges. The first glimpse of Glasgow for us very positive. :-)

Being able to walk right underneath and know that literally tonnes of weight is crossing above you is simply fascinating to me and to many people I'm sure! You can see the huge lorries crossing above as well as the heavy traffic and yet from...More

All I can say is: what a really great bridge across a river in a city. If you are crossing the water I'd totally recommend the bridge as other options might not be that practical.

Had to say I laughed when I saw this has a trip advisor account. I'm hoping this is a weird side effect of Glasgow humour. For non Glaswegians this is a motorway bridge linking to the M8 that makes regular appearance on travel news for...More

This bridge supports the M8 which is the motorway which connects Greenock and Glasgow with Edinburgh. On a weekday, it is very conjested and expect delays. Some nice views but keep your eye on the other traffic users as so busy. There are some good...More
