Construction

Thank you to Allan Dodds for allowing me to reproduce his photograph above of the Forth Road Bridge under construction.

-  In 1958, approval was given to build the bridge.

-  In 1960, the towers were being built.

-  In 1962, the cables were attached

-  In 1963, the girders for the road were being hung from the cables.

So I assume that the photo above would have been taken around 1960-61.

The bridge was officially opened by the Queen on September 4, 1964
