Archaeology Notes

NS56SE 1183 55857 61251

This bridge carries the Glasgow - Kilmarnock (main) line of the former Glasgow and South Western Rly over the entrance drive to Pollok Park a short distance SW of Pollokshaws West Station (NS56SE 81). It does not cross the main road, but remains in regular use by passenger traffic, and carries overhead electric power supply lines.

The structure is depicted, but not noted, on the 1989 edition of the OS 1:10,000 map.
