Information for motorists


The Erskine Bridge carries the A898 over the River Clyde, linking the M898 on the south bank (Renfrewshire) with the A82 on the north bank (West Dunbartonshire).

The A898 is a dual carriageway; check the local speed limit. The left lane coming off the Erskine Bridge Northbound is for the A82 Northbound to Helensburgh and Crianlarich; the right lane coming off the Erskine Bridge Northbound is for the A82 Eastbound to Glasgow.

Coming off the Bridge southbound, there is a slip road leading onto the A726 for Erskine and the Erskine Hospital. If you continue straight along the dual carriageway coming off the Bridge southbound, you will come to the junction with the M8 (Junction 30). Choose your lane for the M8 Westbound towards Greenock, Gourock and Wemyss Bay, or the M8 Eastbound towards Paisley, Glasgow Airport, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Carlisle, and the M80 and M74.

Stopping is not permitted on the Erskine Bridge except in the case of an emergency. There are SOS phones on the Bridge itself.
