Queensferry Crossing (i)

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.
