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. Using 3D animations, interviews with the project team and a wealth of video footage and photographs, the Build section lets you to focus on every element of the job - from blasting a rocky outcrop in the middle of the Forth to a world-breaking underwater concrete pour to the complex joining of five different structures to form the new bridge.
