Kincardine on Forth Bridge
Kincardine on Forth Bridge
The first sod was cut at the site of the bridge by Lord Bruce on 20th December 1933. The bridge was opened on 29th October 1936 by the Earl of Elgin and Kincardine, C.E. Horsbrugh and the Earl of Mar and Kellie, convenors of Fife, Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire respectively.
The bridge was the first road crossing of the River Forth downstream of Stirling and at the time of this submission is still one of only 3 road crossings of the River Forth downstream of Stirling. When it was built, the Kincardine Bridge was the longest swing bridge in Europe but since 1988 it no longer swings.
The photograph shows the approach to the bridge from the north.
