A national media outlet recently published a series of pictures displaying the Queensferry Crossing with its carriageway completed spanning the Firth of Forth to the west of Edinburgh.
The addition to the skyline stretches for 1.7 miles and forms the centrepiece of a major £1.3 billion upgrade to the important cross-Forth transport corridor in the east of Scotland. It is being built by FCBC (Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors).
Taken by amateur photographer, Finlay Wells, the view captures the three crossings of the estuary looking south toward Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills.
To the left of the new crossing sits the Forth Road Bridge, which opened in 1964 and the iconic Forth Bridge which opened in 1890. Carrying the north-to-south rail line, the Forth Bridge is recognised a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Ainscough has delivered lifting services to FCBC from the early stages of the project.
