Video footage has been released showing the operation to slide a 2,000t bridge into place as part of a major motorway project in Scotland.

The three-minute time-lapse video by Transport Scotland shows the rail bridge being slid this week into its final position over what will become the new M8 motorway, to join the existing Cutty Sark rail bridge at Bargeddie, Glasgow.

The completion of the bridge was the culmination of months of planning and preparation between Scottish Roads Partnership (SRP), the contractor responsible for delivering the project, and its construction joint venture, Ferrovial Lagan.
