Opening Date Announced for Queensferry Crossing Bridge


August, 2017 (Scotland --)  The Queensferry Crossing Bridge, spanning the Firth of Forth in Scotland, is due to open this August. The largest 3-tower cable stayed bridge in the world at 2.7 kilometers (1.7 miles) long, the Queensferry Crossing is an extraordinary feat of modern engineering!

Maine Marine Composites (MMC) aided in the construction of the bridge by developing simulation models of the barges and cranes used in the deck lifting, and helping to assess the feasibility of the heavy lift operations. MMC provided guidance on how to moor the barge and what weather conditions were safe for conducting heavy lift operations.
