Thousands suggest names for Forth Replacement Crossing

A total of over 6000 possible names for the new bridge over the River Forth have been suggested by the public.

Last November members of the public were asked for their opinions on what the new crossing should be called. We have had many suggestions from our readers in response to our earlier article.

The name-gathering process ended yesterday, and a group of business and community delegates will then narrow down the names to a shortlist to be put once more to the public.

The winning name for the bridge will then be announced during the summer.

The £1.6 billion project is said to ‘be on time and on budget,’ according to Transport Scotland. You can read the suggested names here on the Transport Scotland website.
