The Build Story

The construction of the Queensferry Crossing between 2011 and 2017 was an incredible feat of civil engineering, undertaken in the challenging climate of the Firth of Forth near Edinburgh. Through exclusive 3D animations, project team interviews, videos and photographs, the Build section explains every element of the job - from blasting a rocky outcrop in the Forth, to the complex joining of five huge structures to form the new bridge.


The Queensferry Crossing bridge is at the centre of the largest Scottish infrastructure project in a generation, including major road and junction upgrades. Explore photography and videos of the bridge and road networks construction from the very beginning of the project.

Frame the Bridge was a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to become a part of the project’s legacy – by helping to build a creative mosaic from submitted selfies and photos of family and friends in front of the Queensferry Crossing during its construction.
