    Queensferry Crossing

    https://www.itv.com/news/2017-08-29/...ad-of-opening/

    All lit up ahead of opening tomorrow.

    Saw it from the Forth Road Bridge last week, stunning project and £245m under budget.

    There goes Scotland's independence from England. Do you ever think that her majesty will ever let the Scots have her bridge.
