Name and dates

Maryhill Viaduct [SR] (1874-1980)

Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.

Opened on the Stobcross Railway.


This is a double track seven arch viaduct over the River Kelvin built for the Stobcross Railway. It is immediately south of, and adjoins, the Maryhill Viaduct [GDH] of the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway, the junction between the two lines originally being at the east end (Maryhill Park Junction [1st]).

The two viaducts effectively provide a four track viaduct of which only the northern portion is currently used, although the modern day junction (Maryhill Park Junction) is formed on the west end of the viaducts. The main line is double track and that south west to Anniesland is single track.

Much of the southern viaduct is not in use and somewhat overgrown.
