Bells Bridge

By AH5310  
From Wikipedia: Bell's Bridge is a pedestrian bridge spanning the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Constructed in 1988 to coincide with the Glasgow Garden Festival. The northern stub of the bridge is supported only by the quay,whereas the majority of the bridge consists of a cable-stayed span which can rotate through 90 degrees, providing two lanes of passage for river traffic either side. It is named for the Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd whisky company, who sponsored its construction, designed by Sir William Arrol & Co. and constructed by John Young and Company (Kelvinhaugh) Ltd.

The bridge from this direction leads to the Crowne Plaza Hotel to the left and the Armadillo and SSE Hydro to the right.
