„North Queensferry Reflections“

Picture ID: 7243f37
Description:

The world famous Forth Bridge viewed from the top of the Town Pier in North Queensferry, Fife, Scotland.

This unique steel Cantilever Railway Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the River Forth from North to South Queensferry.

Construction started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m (~£205m in today’s prices) and 57 fatalities among the construction crew (it is now believed that the actual death toll is likely to have been closer to 80).

The bridge is still in use today, carrying the railways to the north from Edinburgh.

Along with the Forth Road Bridge (about half a mile to the west) these two bridges form the main traffic arteries north and south.
