History Of Dalmarnock Bridge
There was a Ford at Dalmarnock and in 1821 a timber pay bridge was built for traffic crossing between Rutherglen and Dalmarnock.
In 1846 Dalmarnock became a District of the City of Glasgow.
The timber bridge was replaced in1848 with another wooden bridge.
The construction that can be seen today was built in 1891, near to the original Dalmarnock Ford. The engineers were Crouch and Hogg. The Dalmarnock Road Bridge was the first bridge over the River Clyde to have a flat road surface.
The Dalmarnock Bridge is supported by concrete filled wrought iron cylinders that end on the bedrock 65 feet below the river bed and there are five spans stretching across the Dalmarnock Bridge.
The Dalmarnock Bridge was renovated in 1997 and the bridge deck was replaced with a reinforced concrete deck slab and weather resistant steal beams. The historical Gothic parapets were retained as were the ornamental outer beam facia panels and along with these pieces of history the Dalmarnock Bridge suicide ghost remains and sightings of the ghost hauntings are often reported.
