Opened to the public in August 2008, Southbank Marina is the flagship project for the redevelopment of Southbank, Kirkintilloch. The marina is located adjacent to the town centre on the south bank of the Forth & Clyde Canal with breathtaking views of the campsite fells to the North.
The footbridge provides a link from the marina facility to the town centre over the Forth and Clyde Canal, the layout arc allowing for clearance to be achieved for the safe passage of canal traffic. The galvanized guard rail compliments the natural finishes used throughout the development and conceals over 1000 LED lights recessed into the top guard rail, down-lighting the walking surface with emphasis given to lighting the bridge and not the area in which it is located.
