Plans for a new river crossing could be sunk after the West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) planning committee voted against the proposals for a new river crossing on the Clyde, even though the entire idea is being led by Renfrewshire Council, who put forward the original bid.

West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) said they were forced by the Scottish Government to take a position, even though they didn’t have all the facts.

The committee voted six to two against the bridge – the first public vote in any authority on the formal £78million plan.

Then last week Renfrewshire Council’s leadership board backed a proposal for the region-wide City Deal cabinet to revise their plans and drop the bridge in favour of two bridges over the White Cart.
