Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was today due to witness a key part of the new Forth Replacement Crossing being put in place.

A massive cylindrical “cofferdam” will be placed in position on Beamer Rock, where it will form part of the permanent structure for the new bridge’s central tower.

Ms Sturgeon was also set to receive a progress report on the £1.5 billion bridge and meet subcontractors working on the biggest transport infrastructure project for a generation. More than 1000 people are working on the project.
