    The squinty bridge
    The squinty bridge as its known locally is a very photogenic bridge, as well as being very practical for easy access in to the city centre. It is used by traffic and pedestrians and provides a great photo spot for many of Glasgows iconic buildings like the SECC and Hydro. Its definitely worth visiting!

    Great looking bridge
    The Clyde Arc , known also as the Squinty Bridge, is a road bridge spanning the River Clyde in Glasgow, connecting Finnieston near the Clyde Auditorium and SEC with Pacific Quay and Glasgow Science Centre in Govan. Fantastic location, really photogenic place in Glasgow. One of the best views in Glasgow. Great place for lovey riverside walk or just chill for a while. It looks as much good in day as night. A must must must go place if come to Glasgow.

    Watch you don't end up in the bus lane!
    This bridge is a very welcome addition to the west end as it offers a short cut to the new BBC buildings and the Science centre(and a few more places too). It looks lovely in the dark all lit up. However when travelling south to north over the bridge the bus lane (going both ways) is on your left. Difficult to see in the dark. So be careful to go in the correct lane for cars.

Coming home from Village hotel last night in pouring rain, visibility awful turning right out of the hotel. Found myself in a lane with an arrow pointing towards me, making me think I was in an oncoming traffic lane, so moved left which to me was a logical move. Continued through several green lights until I suddenly realised I was turning on to the Squinty bridge, but was in a Bus Lane, but it was too late to get out of it! Such a ridiculous idea to have a "dual carriageway" road but with one side dedicated to buses and taxis!! Have no idea whether traffic cameras are in force at night, but will have to wait for the possibility of an envelope arriving any day.

Near most major bridges there is a tourist map of the Bridges W@alk. if you have 1-2 hours, do it. It takes you over and around most of the major bridges and informs you of the historic changes to the River Clyde. You learn of the underwater tunnels, the ships, the living conditions and the immense skills of the workforce.

The bridge is quite iconic and the arc seemingly welcomes you to Glasgow. The are several interesting points of visit nearby, the armadillo building, BBC Scotland, science museum, the Quay and SECC. All of these are within walking distance from the bridge itself. I gave a higher mark because of location more than the bridge. Gatwick airport has a similar arc for their south terminal! So not really anything of significance.

I read that the Clyde Arc which is also known as Squinty Bridge is the first bridge to be built over the river Clyde in 35 years. It spans 169m across the river.

During the evening, when the lights are up, the surrounding area becomes a spectacular colorful scene. Great to take night photos. Unfortunately, my photography skill is not up to mark and I only manage to capture some shots that are not too clear.

The following buildings & centres are located around the river Cylde.

The Clyde Auditorium or "Armadillo" is located adjacent to the SECC ( Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre ), Glasgow Science Centre and also BBC Scotland

I am no architect or normally overly interested in structures like a new bridge, however I have been impressed by this bridge since it opened a few years back. Known locally as The Squinty Bridge - it was a much needed bridge to make a crossing where the old ferries plied their trade many years ago. Quick way to get from West End of Glasgow over towards areas in the south side of Glasgow and looks great at night when illuminated.

Like name says, it crosses over Clyde River. Beautiful Bridge, that offers great sunset views. Opened 2006, so it's one of the newest bridges in Glasgow. Lot to see and do nearby, like Bells Bridge, Science Center, Clydeside Distillery and Riverside Museum

This bridge is a very unusual design and, at night, can give some great views. Perfectly safe and very close to the The Crowne Plaza Hotel and the new Hydro arena. You can walk along the river and across back using some of the other bridges.

It was difficult to get a good photograph of this bridge from the HoHo bus, but at least its one of the highlights of the tour around the city with the commentary noting that it is also known as the Squinty Bridge. It was built with an innovative curved design, thus providing an interesting landmark structure for the city.

A landmark in Glasgow and worth having a wander past especially if visiting the Hydro. Lit up at night and for architecture lovers..a must visit. Essentially its a bridge but an interesting one.
