The Queensferry Crossing, due to open in 2017, forms the centrepiece of a major upgrade to the cross-Forth transport corridor in the east of Scotland, representing a total Scottish Government investment of £1.35 to £1.4 billion.

The 1.7 miles (2.7km) structure will be the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world and also by far the largest to feature cables which cross mid-span. The innovative design provides extra strength and stiffness, allowing the towers and the deck to be more slender and elegant.
