This swing bridge crossed the Forth and Clyde Canal in Clydebank, near Kilbowie Road station. It linked the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway, on the south bank of the canal, to the Singer Works, on the north bank.
It was a single track bridge, pivoted on the north bank and hand cranked. It was built at the Dalmarnock Iron Works.
An intervention by the North British Railway stopped the L&D from using the bridge.
An exchange yard was built just to the east, on the north side of the station and south bank of the canal.
The bridge may have come into use during British Railways.
It no longer exists, although the abutments can still be found on either side of the canal.
