This is an odd attraction for Glasgow. The Kingston Bridge is a well-known part of the M8 motorway in Glasgow and the busiest bridge in Europe, carrying over 150k cars everyday over the River Clyde. The bridge is a singled arched bridge spanning the entire 150m width of the river.

It's also vehicle bridge only and I've driven over it many times. Unless your car has broken down, you're likely to be paying attention to the motorway than admiring the views. The bridge isn't much to look at even when walking along the river as it's little more than a giant and plain concrete bridge.

When it opened the traffic was very light and it was a pleasure to use it. Today it is more like a race track with jams at rush hours and cars jumping from lane to lane.
Now always seems to be busy but still doing a good job nearly 50 years on.

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 Glasgow. For Glaswegians it's often a junction to be avoided and can have tail backs and roadworks seemingly as frequently as it rains. I'm baffled it's on trip advisor and hope no one goes out of their way to view it!

This is just a road bridge, nothing to see here for tourists or locals, not sure why its even listed as an attraction

This isn't a tourist attraction. It's an ugly road which happens to be a above water. A road which should you attempt to traverse will leave you ample time to revel in it's misery due to traffic bottlenecks. It has high sides which prevent you from seeing anything, presumably as a ward against jumpers. If you do want to jump off a bridge don't choose this one. It's rubbish.

Why review a motorway flyover? If you are passing by on the southside you have the majestic Victorian era Scottish Co Op building at 95 Morrison Street to gawp at. On the northside is the fantastic street art dipicting competitive swimming. The River Clyde walkway on either side offers great views and if you are driving over the bridge the views are even better.

I'm amazed that this bridge has an entry on tripadvisor, its just another concrete motorway bridge although it is admittedly very important to the road network within Scotland. We were last across it just a few days ago. A few years ago I was, with my family, stuck in our car in the dark for about 15 minutes after leaving a concert at the SECC waiting for the traffic jam to clear. We were astounded to see a family of foxes moving about across the area totally unconcerned about all of the cars sitting within yards of them.

You can drive over it , you can walk under it., from any angle it is just a bridge and not a great looking one.
The best you can say is that it is functional

Travel over this bridge regularly and what can I say other than it does it's job. Nothing to look at from any angle. If you are into bridges go to the forth road bridge.

the kingston bridge is a bridge. like many bridges it goes over a river. unlike some bridges (golden gate, brooklyn, tower bridge) it is just a bridge. if you plan your holiday to Scotland around seeing the world famous Kingston Bridge you will be upset by how average it is. if you really must see this bridge then i suggest looking at it from your car window as you drive over it towards a better attraction.

this is not an attraction but simply a road bridge.
