Contact and Education Centre
The Forth Replacement Crossing Contact & Education Centre is designed as a focal point for on-going community engagement and education during the project's construction.
Our mission is "To provide high quality contact and education centre services to local residents and visitors while emphasising the project's purpose, investment value and innovation in construction, as well as the potential benefits a career in engineering can provide."
The Contact Centre is purpose built for:
- Members of the local community - provides a permanent location for those affected by the Forth Replacement Crossing works to speak to a member of the project team face to face
- Group bookings (minimum of 12 people) - can book in advance a visit the education and exhibition room. Please note: this is subject to availability with priority given to educational groups
- The general public - can visit the Project Exhibition, open every Saturday 1000 – 1600, February - December.
The Forth Replacement Crossing Project Exhibition will take place each Saturday (10:00 – 16:00) during 2017. The exhibition is for anyone interested in finding out more about the largest transport infrastructure project in Scotland in a generation.
Representatives of the Client - Transport Scotland and the Contractors - Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) are available at the Project Exhibition and Project Presentations to answer questions about the Forth Replacement Crossing project.
Visitors also have access to facilities including regularly updated exhibition panels, detailed bridge models, audio visual materials and be able to ask questions of project team members. In addition, as we are located in Queensferry on the Edinburgh side of the Forth Road Bridge, the Contact and Education Centre provides a perfect platform to view the existing Forth Bridges and the Queensferry Crossing construction on the Forth estuary.
The exhibition content will continue to develop throughout the construction of the Queensferry Crossing which is scheduled for completion in May 2017.
