The Queensferry Crossing


The bridge was officially opened to traffic across Firth of Forth on the 30th August 2017 by Queen Elizabeth II. Our HES aerial survey team has been recording it's progress since construction started in September 2011.

All our collections can be consulted in our Search Room and through our online resources. This includes Canmore where new images and information are added every day through ongoing surveys of Scotland's built heritage as well as through an active digitisation programme of negatives, prints and drawings.
