The Queensferry Crossing
The Queensferry Crossing the longest three tower cable-stayed bridge in the world is due to open in 2016. The bridge is of a modern design using the latest technology and will reach 207 metres above high tide. Construction will use 150,000 tonnes of concrete, 30,000 tonnes of steel and 23,000 miles of cabling.
The construction is by a consortium of companies from Germany, Spain, USA and the Scottish company Morrison Construction. The project is providing around 1,200 job opportunities and a large number of sub contract and supply order opportunities for Scottish companies.
There will be two lanes of motorway and a hard shoulder running both north and south bound. Windshielding to almost entirely eliminate the need for closures during the frequent periods of high winds in the Forth estuary.
