Plans to improve the transport links along the Clyde have been crucial to the success of the whole Clyde Waterfront project and now having a direct benefit on local communities.

By creating sustainable links - including bridges across the river - the full effects of the River Clyde's regeneration can be enjoyed and shared by everyone.

An important principle has been to connect existing neighbourhoods, such as Govan, Renfrew and Clydebank to the new business locations.

For example, the Clyde Arc, which opened in September 2006, is the first new vehicular bridge over the River Clyde since 1969, and is a crucial infrastructure component in the continued development of Clyde Waterfront. The Broomielaw - Tradeston pedestrian Bridge, known as the Squiggly Bridge, opened in May 2009 and improves pedestrian links between Tradeston and the International Financial Services District (IFSD).

CUrrently in development is Fastlink - a tram-like bus system to serve the Clyde corridor, linking the city centre with the new South Glasgow Hospital.

A major development at the Kingston Bridge is the creation of the M74 - M8 interchange, as the new 5 miles section of M74 provides a vital missing link in Glasgow's motorway network.

By improving connectivity, we have laid the foundations of an effective transport network in the area.
