Date: Monday 31 July Time: 10.30am Location: Crossmyloof station (where a plaque will be unveiled) One of Glasgow's most ambitious road and rail construction projects will be unveiled next week when Tom Harris MP re-opens Titwood Road Bridge on the city's south side. The £7 million replacement of Titwood Road Bridge was a joint project funded by Network Rail and Glasgow City Council to deliver significant improvements in road and rail capacity. The bridge has been strengthened, allowing the removal of the three tonne weight restriction and bringing the bridge into line with European standards.  Road alignment at the junction has been enhanced and the bridge now provides sufficient clearance for Virgin Pendolino trains, which means that passengers will still be able to enjoy a reliable service into Glasgow when vital engineering work has to be carried out on the West Coast Main Line.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
