The Forth Bridge


The Forth Bridge Memorial

The Forth Road Bridge was designed as a four lane suspension bridge with walkways and cycle ways on either side and at the time of its opening was the fourth longest suspension bridge in the world.

Due to the immense scale of the project, the building of the bridge drew considerable artificial grass london interest. As the largest Suspension Bridge constructed in Europe new and specialist techniques were developed including a training school specifically created to teach the techniques of cable spinning.

The Forth Road Bridge stretches over 1 ½ miles (2 ½ Kilometres) with two towers rising over 500 feet (150 meters) above the waterline. Vast cables suspended between the towers sag by 300 feet (91 meters) each over 2 feet (60 cm) in diameter, bound together by 11618 spun steel wires.

Finally at 17:48 on 4th September 1964 the tolls opened and traffic began to flow across the bridge, within 4 hours over 20 000 vehicles had passed over the Forth Road Bridge.
