The recently completed Stockingfield Bridge has won the 2022 Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) People’s Choice Award, which recognises civil engineering projects that have made a positive impact on their local communities. The two-way spanning cable-stayed pedestrian and cycle bridge has officially opened and connects communities of Maryhill, Gilshochill and Ruchill on either side of the Forth & Clyde Canal for the first time since 1790. It will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the canal without leaving the towpath, avoiding a potentially dangerous road tunnel. It also forms the ‘missing link’ in the National Cycle Network which follows the canal towpath, offering a traffic-free route between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
