The Forth Road Bridge is a suspension bridge, unlike the cantilever rail bridge. Several proposals were rejected before the Mott Hay and Anderson design was chosen. It was the first long-span suspension bridge in the UK. Others have of course followed - the Severn Bridge, and the Humber Bridge. The Forth Road Bridge contains 39,000 tons of steel, the towers stand 494 feet above the concrete foundations and it took a workforce of 300 just three and a half years to complete.BridgesConstructionWorkmanJune 19621960s
