Representing a masterpiece in world-class engineering, the Queensferry Crossing is a major part of the Scottish Government’s plan for the Forth transport corridor.

The Queensferry Crossing is the third bridge to span the Firth of Forth.  Together, all three bridges provide passage for people travelling across Scotland by road, rail, foot or bike.

The new Queensferry Crossing complements the UNESCO World Heritage Forth Bridge, opened in 1890, and the visionary Forth Road Bridge first opened in 1964.
