Finnieston Crane & Bridge

Finnieston Crane & Bridge

It’s old meets new, as the old Finnieston Crane towers next to the brand new Finnieston Bridge down at the River Clyde in Glasgow. The crane was built in 1931 and was the largest crane in Europe at the time of construction. It is now one of the most identifiable images of Glasgow.
The Finnieston Bridge aka ‘The Clyde Arc’ opened on 18th October 2006 and is the first road bridge to be built across the Clyde in 35 years at a cost of £20.3m.
