Following the discovery of corrosion in the cables of the Forth Road Bridge in 2005, work was rapidly progressed to procure and construct a new crossing. The new Queensferry Crossing Bridge was opened by Her Majesty, The Queen on 4 September 2017 following 10 years of design, planning and construction.
Lawrence will highlight how the bridge, which is the world’s longest three tower cable-stayed bridge, was realised within this tight timeframe, highlighting some of the lessons learnt and issues involved.
