More information:

In 1873 the Forth Bridge Company was formed to construct a bridge to a design of Thomas Bouch. The construction was halted in 1879 when another of Bouch's railway bridges, the Tay Bridge collapsed. A new design by Fowler and Baker that pioneered the cantilever and steel construction began in 1883. The bridge was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1890. The current schedule of maintenance of the bridge started in 1998 and is to continue until 2009. Balfour Beatty currently hold the maintenance contract.
