Ruth hails official opening of Queensferry Crossing

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has welcomed the official opening of the Queensferry Crossing.

Earlier, the Queen cut the ribbon on the new bridge across the Forth, exactly 53 years after she opened the Forth Road Bridge.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said:

“As a Fifer who lives in Edinburgh, and someone who represents thousands of bridge users, I know just how important it is to have speedy access across the Forth.

“The Queensferry Crossing is a fantastic piece of engineering and I pay tribute to all those involved in her design and construction.

“To have Her Majesty the Queen opening the crossing, more than 50 years after she opened the Forth Road Bridge, made today extra special.

“To see three bridges, from three different centuries and made to three different designs all standing tall and side by side across the Forth, is a beautiful sight.”
