Hanna, Donald and Wilson, 1877. Elliptically arched, cast-iron girder bridge (pedestrian). Lattice railings.
The station opened on 1 December 1877 and closed in 1962. The footbridge is still used frequently as access over the former Glasgow-Barrhead railway line; the station office has been converted to a shop. The manufacturer (who worked from the Abbey Engineering Works, Paisley) were evidently proud of the foot bridge, using it in one of their advertisements. The steps down to the platform have been removed and the deck replaced with steel durbar plates.
