Today was cold but bright so I fired up the FJ and took a run over to the east to see progress on the Queensferry Crossing. It is over two years since I last blogged on the bridge. As with many bridges a lot of work has gone on under ground (and under water) but the towers of the cable stayed bridge are now taking shape.
The new bridge is to replace the existing road bridge and will join the famous rail bridge crossing the River Forth.
