We have been working on the Queensferry Crossing since 2009 and are very proud to see the bridge's centre tower deck recognised in the Guinness World Records. However, the title will be short lived as we will soon start to connect the spans. Though the Queensferry Crossing will remain the UK's tallest bridge and the world's longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge!

Ramboll is proud to be leading the Design Joint Venture which includes Sweco and Leonhardt Andra und Partners on this exciting Transport Scotland project. You can find out more about the bridge and our involvement here.
