The Queensferry crossing is a road bridge under construction in Scotland. It is being built alongside the existing Fourth Road Bridge across the Firth of Fourth, and will connect Scotland's capital city Edinburgh, at South Queensferry to Fife at North Queensferry.
The Queensferry Crossing will be a cable-stayed bridge, with an overall length of 1.7 miles. The Bridge will carry two lanes of traffic in each direction, plus hard shoulders with the road designed to motorway standard. The new bridge will carry cars and heavy goods vehicles while public transport, cyclists and pedestrians will use the existing bridge.
Estimated costs of the new Bridge will be around £3.25 billion and £4.2 billion.
