SCC WELCOMES MILESTONE ON THE ROAD TO THE NEW FORTH BRIDGE

Commenting on the news that Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors have been chosen as preferred bidders for the Forth Replacement Crossing project, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“This is an important step on the way to the delivery of a vital piece of Scotland’s transport infrastructure. The news that preferred bidders have been appointed and that the project remains on schedule for completion in 2016 will reassure the business community that plans for this key project remain on target and are a priority for Government.

“Successive Holyrood administrations have placed the new Forth Road Bridge at the top of their transport agenda and this must continue until the bridge is built and open to traffic. Many jobs depend upon the success of this project, which is vital to the Scottish economy as a whole.”
