okay i may have brought up a thread that the last post was 2 years ago but i have information for you and new images

The proposed new cable-stayed bridge will have three slender single column towers and will be 2.7km long, including approach viaducts.
The bridge deck will carry two general lanes of traffic in each direction and hard shoulders to ensure that breakdowns, incidents and any maintenance works do not cause the severe congestion which is currently experienced on the Forth Road Bridge. The hard shoulders also provide the flexibility to carry buses during periods of high wind and further public transport should it be required in the future.

Windshielding on the new bridge will protect the crossing from the effects of wind and provide a more reliable corridor, particularly for heavy goods vehicles.

The elegant, unique bridge has been designed to complement the existing road and rail crossings and is the result of a rigorous assessment by an international team of architects and engineers. The bridge has been developed in consultation with Architecture and Design Scotland, see their report.

Further artists impressions of the bridge can be downloaded from the Information Centre on this website.

5,8 MILLION €€€€???

total rip-off ...

it's like 2 times the amount of the Lisboa-badajoz High speed line ... coprises a 10km 4 track railway bridge (3+3 highway lanes on top level) + 200km of 350km/h HSR and a lot of aditional works ... total cost ???

About 3 million €€€

found this at the linked homepage in the FAQ:
How much will it cost?
The estimated cost is £1.7 - £2.3 billion in outturn costs.

What is included in the cost estimate?
This estimate is an outturn costs estimate based on the same principles / elements as the previous estimate of £3.2 - £4.2 billion. That is:
• Bridge and approach viaducts
• Connecting roads which now also include costs for ITS
• Optimism bias adjusted to reflect the greater design knowledge
• Cost of capital to Scottish Government
optimism bias adjusted..
still ****** expensive though

I note that the Confederation Bridge, which is 12.6 km (8 miles) long, and is the longest bridge across freezing ocean water in the world, cost only CAD 1.3 billion (GBP 800 million) in 1993-1997. Granted, it's only two lanes wide. And they didn't have to build as many roads at the approaches.
