Artist's Description

The first of the massive steel caissons (21.1m tall x 23m diameter) is being sited in the River Forth at the location of the North Tower for the New Forth Crossing. When fully sunk in place, its contact with the rock will be sealed and the sediment from inside the caisson excavated before it is filled with special underwater concrete to form the base of the foundations.

An even larger caisson (30m tall x 23m diameter) is almost ready to be sited for the South Tower support.

Once the foundations of the new bridge are in place, the towers will be built. First will be the central tower, whose foundation on Beamer Rock does not require a caisson. The bridge is scheduled to be opened in 2016.
