The new bridge has set a number of records already, https://www.theforthbridges.org/queensferry-crossing/facts-and-figures/. One staggering statistic is that the length of cabling used to support the span of the bridge would very nearly stretch all the way round the world. The bridge has taken six years to complete, and amazingly came in under budget. Scotland is not generally known for its under budget projects - the Scottish Parliament building and also the Edinburgh trams spring to mind!!! Last July I took a few photographs of work in progress.
The finished item really is a thing of beauty. The white cabling gives a ghostly appearance, and on a bright day, in the early morning sun, I can see the bridge in the far distance, when I am out walking with the dogs.
