Priory Bridge (Roadbridge) downstream

Pictured in Summer 2017 by Alex Rochead, is the other side of the Priory Bridge roadbridge. This twin culvert is pictured on the downstream side (not from from the Priory Bridge Housing Estate).


Built in 1928, it’s a scene not many of us have seen before, usually missing it completely as we drive over the top of it heading to Cambuslang. The road is at the top of the embankment, near the top of the picture.
