Generation Scaffold for #QueensferryCrossing

| Case Studies

Generation Edinburgh, are proud to have supplied a range of scaffolding products for the construction of the Queensferry crossing bridge over the Firth of Forth river in Scotland. The bridge opened its doors to motorist yesterday (30/08/17).

The Queensferry Crossing is Britain’s newest road bridge; suspended by 23,000 miles of cables; enough to go around the world almost 3 times! It is the tallest bridge in the UK with towers over 200 meters high.

The Queensferry crossing project started back in 2011, with Generation supplying 1000 sets of round top temporary fence panels. Since then, Generation has supplied a full array of products to the site, mounting up to over £1milllion.

The project size and complexity made Generation the perfect scaffolding supplier; the collection of stock included the Generation Genlok System Scaffold, which allowed a fast and efficient structure to be created, Genstair Staircases, which provided safe access to the working structures.

Generation are honored to have being part of creating the longest freestanding balanced cantilever in the world and congratulate all the workers on their hard work and efforts in creating a magnificent structure.
