The Contact and Education Centre is a purpose built 3,000ft² dual-use facility which will serve as a central point for public information during the construction of the new Forth Road Bridge as well as providing space for a visitor exhibition.

The landmark building also provides a new permanent home for Traffic Scotland’s National Control Centre that will monitor the operation of Scotland’s road network including acting as a coordinating hub during emergencies, disruption and periods of severe weather.

Phil Wheeler, FETA Convener, said: “It has been a long-held ambition of the bridge authority to see a high quality visitor facility established for the Forth bridges. The new bridge will be of huge interest during construction and, once complete, we will have a unique visitor attraction in three major bridges from three consecutive centuries.”
