The new cable-stayed Queensferry Crossing bridge will have three slender single column towers and will be 2.7km long, including approach viaducts.

30,000 tonnes of steel will be used in this project to build the longest three tower cable-stayed bridge in the world.

The bridge deck will carry two general lanes of traffic in each direction and hard shoulders to ensure that breakdowns, incidents and any maintenance works do not cause the severe congestion which is currently experienced on the Forth Road Bridge.

Opening of the new bridge is scheduled for late 2016 and the talk, by those directly involved, will describe current progress with the construction.

The speakers are from Transport Scotland Employer’s Delivery Team and Contractor FCBC. They have all been directly involved in the project on a daily basis.
