Burnshot Bridge: Construction site visit, Edinburgh

About this event

Following on from the presentation on 12 September, Balfour Beatty are offering a site visit to the new A90 Burnshot Bridge. The original Burnshot Bridge was constructed in 1964 as part of the A90 corridor to the Forth Road Bridge.

After just 53 years of service, it was demolished in 2017 due to deteriorated half-joints and concerns about the structural integrity of the deck. Construction of a new bridge is now underway and this talk will focus on the procurement, design and construction of this new active-travel-focused link.

Advance booking is required. The site visit will start at 3.30pm. Attendees should bring their own PPE (Safety Boots, HiVis Jacket, Hardhat, Gloves and Safety Glasses) If you are unable to bring your own please notify the event organiser in advance. Meeting point is shown on the attached plan.
