HUGE sections of deck which will form part of the new Queensferry Crossing are being made ready to be moved into position.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon visited the construction site today at the bridge’s southern viaduct.
She said: “When I visited the site last November I saw the structures being dispatched to start work on the tower foundations. Since then the world’s largest underwater concrete pour has taken place and now the towers are emerging above the water.
“This fantastic progress is being matched on the land. Looking at the 100 metre long section of deck really shows you just how vast the final Queensferry Crossing will be. It’s a credit to the hard work of those involved in delivering the project to have made such progress so far.”
