    The lack of traffic on the Road Bridge is spooky...

    In the bottom pic you can see a set of closed gates. There are two houses in there. I take my pics from the house furthest away. I don't live there but hopefully I'll be there again this week and take some close ups.

    It's not far off, rumours of them speeding it up but it's already ahead of schedule so I doubt that.

    The tide was in when I went otherwise I'd have gone around the beach to the support on this side as you can get really close

    I bet Kincardine bridge is rammed almost constantly, these days.

    It's limited to buses and lorries so not too bad. The Clacks Bridge on the other hand is just one big traffic jam.

    Looks like they've reached max height as they seem to be dismantling the surround at the top.

    Not long to go! Staying open in 100mph+ winds wasn't something I'd heard before.

    Interesting picture with that article, given the current restriction on HGVs on the FRB.

    Cool - I hope they stay on schedule. I'm spending next Xmas/New Year with family back in Dunfermline.

    Excuse the quality (Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, great phone, bad camera!) but I needed to show how close the North side now is to connecting to the first tower.
    I'll try to get out tomorrow to get some better shots from nearer to it.
