A PHOTOGRAPH released by Ordnance Survey on Twitter shows a stunning aerial view of the three Forth bridges.

First posted two days ago, the picture was reposted this afternoon by the official account of the new Queensferry Crossing.

The picture follows drone footage captured in April by Scottish digital media company Airborne Lens, which documented the progress of the work on the new bridge.

The picture shows the older Forth bridges side by side with the partially completed Queensferry crossing and the wonderfully blue waters of the Firth of Forth.

A key milestone on the new bridge was reached earlier this year when engineers completed the complex process of pushing the massive viaduct out across the bridge’s distinctive V-shaped piers on the north side of the Forth.

The new £1.35 billion Queensferry crossing is due to open to traffic in December this year.
