ALEX Neil, Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment, marked a major milestone on the Forth Replacement Crossing project yesterday, as he oversaw the ongoing construction work.

Mr Neil said almost £20 million of sub-contracts have been awarded to 118 Scottish firms as part of work to build the new crossing, set to open in 2016.

He said a further 134 sub-contracts are being advertised, adding: “The project is expected to support over 1200 new jobs during its construction.”

He said the bridge is on time and on budget.
