The bridge is located in Scotland where it crosses the Firth of Forth - it is an estuary that separates the Scottish capital of Edinburgh from the Kingdom of Fife to the north. The downstream crossings of the Forth at Queensferry are a pair of historic bridges – the famous cantilever rail bridge constructed in the 1880s and the Forth Road Bridge, Britain´s first long-span suspension bridge, which was opened in 1964. The Queensferry Crossing comprises three approximately 200 high main towers which support two 650m main spans with associated approach viaducts with a total crossing length of 2,638m. It is the longest three tower cable-stayed bridge in the world and also by far the largest to feature cables which cross at mid-span.
