The Queensferry Crossing -The engineering behind a 21st century bridge over the River Forth

7 March 2017 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm


The 19th Century Forth Rail Bridge became an iconic structure and the Forth Road Bridge followed in the 20th century. Now we have a third major crossing between North and South Queensferry. All these bridges represent top class engineering but there are significant changes in the way that they have been designed and built. The Queensferry Crossing is one of the largest, most complex engineering projects undertaken in Scotland in recent years. This talk will discuss how the bridge was designed, procured and constructed highlighting the challenges that were experienced.

David Climie is Project Director, Transport Scotland and Michael Martin is Project Director, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors. Mr Climie and Mr Martin are two of the leading bridge engineers in the country. We are delighted to have two such eminent practitioners presenting a paper on their recent work.
