Huge interest in name the bridge vote

Minister for Transport, Keith Brown said:

“There has been a phenomenal response to voting for the name of the Forth Replacement Crossing with over 20,000 votes cast since Monday. It is fantastic to see so many people getting involved in choosing the name and I hope that this continues. We know there is a huge interest in what is Scotland’s biggest infrastructure project in a generation, but the number coming forward over the past few days has surpassed our expectations.”
