Queensferry Crossing is a major infrastructure project for Scotland, designed to safeguard a vital connection in the country’s transport network and is Scotland’s biggest transport infrastructure project in a generation.

This new iconic structure being constructed over the Firth of Forth linking Fife and Edinburgh will be the longest three tower cable-stayed bridge in the world and will also be the largest to feature cables which cross mid-span. The bridge has been designed to complement the existing road and rail crossings.

  • £18.7m Value
  • 30,000 tonnes Of steel used in this project

The new Queensferry Crossing includes 23,000 miles of cabling – enough to stretch almost all the way around the earth!

150,000 tonnes Of concrete will be poured

The detail

Transport Scotland has employed Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) consortium which consists of HOCHTIEF Solutions AG, American Bridge International, Dragados S.A and Morrison Construction, to undertake the works.

SES Engineering Services’ work on this project will ensure the future of a vital element of Scotland’s transport network.

The outcome

Our main delivery strategy on this project is to maximise the amount of M&E services that can be installed within the individual CSB deck sections whilst remained on-shore. In order to achieve this goal, SES has set up a local PRISM facility in Rosyth to manufacture the containment and pipework service modules.
