Location: Firth of Forth
Morrison Construction has been selected as part of the Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) joint venture to design and construct the Queensferry Crossing in Scotland.
The contract, which is being undertaken in joint venture with Hochtief, Dragados and American Bridge International, is seeing the design and delivery of a cable-stayed road bridge over the Firth of Forth immediately to the west of the existing Forth Road Bridge together with new road connections both north and south of the estuary.
The new crossing will consist of a two-lane motorway with hard shoulders and will replace the existing Forth Road Bridge as the main route for traffic across the Forth; safeguarding this vital cross-Forth connection in Scotland’s transport network.
The bridge is expected to open to traffic in 2016.
