Our Next Event

Visit to Queensferry Crossing

Afternoon of Wednesday 4th May 2016
The Queensferry Crossing is due to open later this year. This visit is an opportunity to see how the project is progressing 7 months from completion.
The 1.7 miles (2.7km) structure will be the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world and also by far the largest to feature cables which cross mid-span. This innovative design provides extra strength and stiffness, allowing the towers and the deck to be more slender and elegant. More information at
It is hoped to arrange a pub lunch in the area before the visit for those interested.

REGISTER for this event now by contacting Frank McCall (click here)
 also letting him know if you are interested in lunch.
