Queensferry Crossing is the name of the New Forth Road Bridge, now under construction. Personally I think they ought to have embraced the pun and called it the Fifth Bridge since there are now two bridges at Kincardine-on-Forth plus the Forth Bridge (the rail bridge) and the Road Bridge.
I started taking photographs in October 2014 but haven’t got round to posting them till now. The first three are from the North Queensferry side.
This is a support pillar for the carriageway on the north side:-
The northern cable stay tower:-
Centre and southern cable stay towers:-
These three are from the South Queensferry end.
South support pillars and bridge starting to be winched out. Note temporary cable stay arrangement:-

We took a stroll around Geddington (see previous post) and found a lovely bridge. The bridge is only wide enough for one car/vehicle at a time. You can see here the ford beside it which allows simultaneous passage. (We did see a driver chicken out of tackling the ford though):-
