Queensferry Crossing construction, June 2015.

The three towers are nearing completion; each has a tower crane and two blue travelling cranes which will hoist deck segments. Tower cranes operate at the ends of north (left) and south (right) approach viaducts, along with two mobile floating cranes at the south. The initial deck sections for each tower are supported on temporary formwork.

The southern approach viaduct has most of its deck in place now, but the two king-post towers are still in place for launching the remaining sections. Northern approach deck sections are under construction on shore.

The Forth Road Bridge, which opened in 1964, is visible behind.
