The construction of the Forth Replacement Crossing took a major step forward this week as the carriageway moved out

towards the Forth.

The construction works are now at the midway stage in the four year project but in the past week, the extent of construction carried out has become more apparent.

Work has been ongoing at the FRC compound at Springfield since the project began.

But as of this week, one of the new bridge carriageways can be clearly seen overhanging the town’s Society Road as it inches its way towards the next pier.

At Builyeon Road on the A904, work on the proposed Queensferry Junction, a huge gyratory, has been revealed.

Project director David Climie said: “We are at the half-way point on the project and people can really start to see the Queensferry Crossing rising from the Forth.

‘‘On the south side, the approach viaduct is being pushed out and the new Queensferry junction is on schedule to open this summer.’’
