It’s not always sporting

The Queensferry Crossing

T

The Queensferry Crossing bridge is Britain’s newest road bridge and was 10 years in the planning, 6 years in the building at a cost of £1.35 billion, has taken 15,000 workers the equivalent of 20 million man hours to construct. 24 million vehicles will travel over the 2.7 km/210m high bridge every year.

Apart from being the longest three-tower cable stayed bridge in the world, the centre tower was officially recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as being the longest, free-standing, balanced cantilever ever built.

50,000 lucky ticket holders had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk over the new bridge after the opening by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

iAccredit.me accreditation software was used by Unique Events, Scotland’s leading events and festivals creation company and the organiser of this event — adding yet another successful iAccredit.me accreditation project for Rushmans with 2017 already bringing a diverse range of clients and regions — ranging from this latest bridge opening project in Scotland to a cricket world cup qualifier in Sri Lanka to an international football series in Singapore featuring major European clubs.

So there you have it. iAccredit may have roots in sporting history but its versatility means that it can be used for all kinds of events.
