We caught up with former Edinburgh College civil engineering modern apprentice Keir Stanton, who worked on the construction of the new Queensferry Crossing bridge.
“Working on the bridge is a huge achievement and, now that it is finished, you can see the scale and the excitement in the media that it is opening. I feel proud to have been part of a great project with amazing people and to have attained knowledge, experiences and stories that will stay with me for a very long time. Driving over the bridge will be exciting, getting to see how everything has come together. But it is extra special when you know, firsthand, just how much hard work has gone into the construction."
