The Forth Ports Board, Chaired by Lord Smith of Kelvin, visited the Port of Rosyth today (17 Oct) for a tour and briefing on the role that the port has played as the marine hub for the construction of the Queensferry Crossing. The bridge is due for completion next year and as the marine hub since 2011, the Fife port has been transformed to leave a legacy for its future success.

The significant investment by Forth Ports and the FCBC project team in strengthening the quayside storage areas at North Wall; security systems; and warehousing at the port; as well as the new improved roads infrastructure that the opening of the new bridge will bring, will position Rosyth as a key location for specialist project work, heavy lift operations and will make the port very attractive to the North Sea oil & gas sector.
