Design and construction of Clackmannanshire Bridge, Scotland

The Clackmannanshire bridge at Kincardine, Scotland is not only one of the largest bridges in the UK, but is also the second longest incrementally launched bridge in the world. The 1188 m long bridge provides relief to Kincardine on a route that crosses the Firth of Forth immediately upstream of the existing Kincardine Bridge. The environmental sensitivities of the Forth estuary have shaped almost every aspect of the scheme, including route selection, structural form, construction methods and programme.
