50,000 people make 'once in a lifetime' walk over newly-opened Queensferry Crossing

And SMILER was there!

posted by Mike Walton

Tens of thousands of people have walked the Queensferry Crossing in a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity to cross the new Forth bridge on foot.

The £1.35 billion structure has been taken over by pedestrians for the weekend before being officially opened by the Queen on Monday.

Over Saturday and Sunday, 50,000 of those lucky enough to secure tickets in a public ballot are due to walk across the structure that links Edinburgh and Fife.

The first of those to make the journey set off under blue skies at 9am led by Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Transport Minister Humza Yousaf.

One of the lucky ticket holders who crossed from north to south was SMILER member Lesley Allison who took the opportunity to get her picture taken for the world famous SMILER calendar montage and said in her own inimitable style " If I dinnae win summit... I tell ya! Haha "..So we hope Rod and Penny see this before they choose the the winners!
