    I think I can see the bridge, just on the left, about 300 miles in the distance

    I've not taken my usual pic for quite some time now but he's another couple from today (Phone camera) , it's coming on well and is nearly connected all the way along.

    It got a Guinness world record as the largest freestanding balanced cantilever in the world a few days ago.

    Drive over this way last week and it looks like it had been connected now. Looking pretty impressive. Roadworks as always are a pain in the butt.

    North side is now pretty much done, the crane is starting to come down and the support framework under the first sections is also being removed.

    Not long to go until completion! Updated the second post with a new pic (after far too long) The North side crane is now down, the roadway supports are gone and the wind shields are going up.

    Four years later and we're almost there.

    Your efforts are appreciated, Rob_B.

    Re: Queensferry Crossing / New Forth Road Bridge - Construction pictures

    Well it's nearly done, people will be crossing over it for probably the only time by foot in September, I should be getting a place to do so as well so pics will be incoming.

    Took this one during tonight's rowing.
