Albert Bridge (Glasgow)
Crosses the River Clyde at the SW corner of Glasgow Green, replacing the Hutcheson Bridge
The appearance suggests that cast iron is the dominant material, but in fact the arch beams are wrought iron. The parapets are substantial iron castings. The outer arches are faced with ornamental iron castings, but even here the picture is complicated, as iron plates are evidently riveted over part of the spandrel castings (see Photo 6).
Extensive refurbishment was carried out in 2013. The work included replacement of all the parapet and lamp post castings with replicas in tougher ductile iron. The castings were supplied by Ballantine Castings Ltd of Bo'ness
