Queensferry Crossing towers reach halfway mark
January 28 2015
The Queensferry Crossing is scheduled to offer motorists an alternative route across the Forth by December 2016, easing pressure on the existing Forth road bridge which has become congested.
Visiting the project infrastructure secretary Keith Brown said: “It’s not just out in the Forth where excellent progress is being made. Work is now underway to construct the north approach viaduct, where the final bridge will land on the Fife side. Assembly of the southern viaduct deck was completed last year and it will be launched into its final position later this year.
“Constructing and upgrading the connecting roads are a huge job in their own right. In fact there are 11 road bridges being built as part of the new approach road and junction on the south side and the significantly upgraded Ferrytoll junction to the north.”
