Crossing the Forth

An impressive bridge structure that spans the Firth of Forth in Scotland, the 1.6 mi long Queensferry Crossing incorporates various design innovations and provides a reliable and fast route for travelers, designed to stay open in all weather conditions. It is the newest member of a family of bridges, including the Forth Road Bridge and Forth Bridge, that represents three centuries of civil engineering achievement, each reflecting the technology of its day. The Crossing is divided into a cable-stayed bridge and a southern approach viaduct. The success of the project is the result not only of its design and construction, but to its planning and management of authorizations and approvals, against a backdrop of high social and political expectations, as well as tight budgetary constraints.
