Construction award for Clyde Arc

A 20m bridge over the River Clyde has received a Civil Engineering Award from The Saltire Society.

The Clyde Arc - known locally as the squinty bridge - links Finnieston to Pacific Quay and opened in 2006.

A spokesman for The Saltire Society said the bridge was a state-of-the-art structure and an elegant addition to the skyline in Glasgow.

BBC Scotland's headquarters at Pacific Quay was among a number of projects commended at the award ceremony.

Others included the Marine Operations building at Aberdeen Harbour and the Lairig Eilde Bridge replacement on the A82 in Glencoe.
