The Queensferry Crossing boasts some impressive facts and figures.
- The structure spans 1.7 miles (2.7km) making it the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world.
- The biggest infrastructure project in Scotland for a generation.
- New world record in 2013 when we achieved the largest continuous underwater concrete pour. The 24-hour non-stop operation successfully poured 16,869 cubic metres of concrete into the water-filled south tower caisson.
- Prior to the completion of the final closure sections on the deck, the balanced cantilevers which extend 322m north and south from the central tower, i.e. 644m tip to tip, were recorded by Guinness as the longest ever.
- Highest bridge towers in the UK. (210m)
- The longest free-standing balanced cantilever in the world. (Centre Tower deck fan was 644m wide prior to being connected to the rest of the structure)
