Sections of Queensferry Crossing arrive on largest-ever ship to use Rosyth

 

The Chinese heavy-load ship, Zhen Hua 24, arrived in Rosyth this morning with a cargo of huge steel 350 tonne deck sections for the Queensferry Crossing.

The Port of Rosyth is playing a key role in the construction process of the new £1.4 billion Queensferry Crossing .

Charles Hammond, Forth Ports chief executive, said, “We are thrilled to be playing our part in this significant construction project and our key location close to the construction site ensures that materials are only a matter of minutes away by water delivery.The new bridge will position Rosyth as a key location for specialist project work, heavy lift operations and will make the port very attractive to the North Sea oil and gas sector.”

Preparatory work on the new bridge began in October 2011 in the Forth and the project is expected to be completed and the bridge opened to traffic by March 2016.
