The M8 was Glasgow' s most ambitious engineering project since the introduction of the railways, cutting the city in two and providing a vital link between east and west. The Kingston Bridge provides motorists a route across the Clyde, and was opened in 1970, making it 51 years old now.

Here we take a look back at its construction, opening and works done on the well-used route, from the late 1960s until 1990s.
