Journal and Gazette readers are to get an opportunity to find out more about the latest developments on the Forth Replacement Crossing Project.

A series of presentations next Friday, August 29, will provides an in-depth look at the construction of the Queensferry Crossing with an opportunity to hear from project engineers in detail about various aspects of the construction of the Queensferry Crossing.

The programme for the day starts at 10am with a project overview and update where attendees will get a full appreciation of why the crossing is being built, and how it is being constructed.

At 11.30 am, the focus of attention will turn to the new roads network associated with the Queensferry Crossing.

The next session starts at 2.30pm where it will focus on ‘‘Cable Stayed Bridge – Construction Process.’’ Visitors will be given an insight as to what will eventually make the Queensferry Crossing fully operational. This presentation will also look at the construction process and will cover the offsite fabrication works and Rosyth marine yard works where the cable stayed bridge segments are being made up.

Each presentation lasts around 45 minutes with an opportunity for questions and discussions afterwards.

The event is at the Contact and Education Centre, Ferrymuir Gait, South Queensferry. No booking is required. For more information, see
