Renfrew Bridge

 The first section of a new bridge connecting Renfrew with Yoker has arrived in Glasgow from the Netherlands.

The Renfrew Bridge will be the first opening road bridge across the River Clyde, which will open for passing ships.

It is a two-lane road bridge for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.

The bridge is being delivered in two parts - with the second section due to arrive in late-May - and will open to the public later in the year.

Built in the Netherlands, the south section of the 603ft (184m) bridge arrived on the River Clyde after travelling for seven days on a barge across the English Channel and Irish Sea.
