    I was up early with the kids and noticed these fellows already working, rather them than me!



    Also I went up the Scott Monument for the first time since living here (a long time now). Got all 3 bridges in (just about)

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

    Not many pics recently but some of the road sections have gone on today, I missed it as I was at work but this shot shows the addition to the left. It's hard to see from this angle but if you compare it to something like this shot (different section) you can kind of see what they've done.

    I'm just asking if i can share some pics from someone else who got some good shots of them going on.

    Couple of pics I took today from the north side. Not really adding much to what's been posted before apart from a slightly different angle

    It looks like they are building sections of bridge deck on shore, ready to slide out. If so, that's going to be something to see!

    Thanks for keeping us updated with pictures.

    They are built on shore then will be barged out to be lifted, there are a couple of pics further up of them being lifted.

    It's good to see up close isn't it bluecube

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

    Saw a road section being lifted as I came home from work tonight so took a couple of pics. The white cables (rods?) are what's holding up the road sections, as you can see there are a lot more holes to be filled!
    A couple more pics are on flickr.
