A DISUSED railway bridge over the Clyde has been transformed thanks to a dramatic lighting scheme.

Linked Via Light brought together young people from either side of the Westburn Viaduct - Carmyle in Glasgow and Westburn in South Lanarkshire - to devise a scheme for the shared landmark.

Pupils from Bannerman, Trinity and Cathkin high schools came up with ideas for different colours and patterns to light up the bridge.

Their plan was brought to life for the first time at a special Glasgow Green Year 2015 event to coincide with Commonwealth Games Legacy Week.

City councillor Anne Simpson, who switched on the lights, said: "We are rightly proud of the communities of Carmyle and Westburn for working together to take ownership of the bridge and area around it and changing it for the better."

South Lanarkshire Council leader Eddie McAvoy said: "It is fitting the Commonwealth Games legacy has brought together our two communities through this marvellous lighting project just as the Games lit up Glasgow and the surrounding areas last summer."

Linked Via Light is one of a number of schemes delivering improvements in the area. These include the Clyde Walkway Project which has resulted in pathways and new cycle gates aimed at encouraging more people to walk and cycle in the area.
