Scotland\u2019s spectacular new Queensferry Crossing, which has cost nearly one and a half billion euros, is the third bridge across the Firth of Forth, which now has a bridge for each of the last three centuries spanning its waters.\n\nFirst Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon took selfies with members of the public as pedestrians were allowed to cross before it was opened to traffic. \n\n\u201cThere\u2019s a real feeling of pride on the part of all the people I\u2019ve spoken to today. I sense that what\u2019s been created here is a transport link, it\u2019s here to do a job, but it\u2019s a stunning icon as well that will be known and become known, not just in Scotland, but right across the world. One of the best bridges anywhere in the world,\u201d she said.\n\nIf you want to do the same, then it\u2019s too late.\n\n\u201cWe\u2019ve come here because I think they\u2019ve marketed it as a once in a lifetime opportunity and it is. None of my friends can say that they\u2019ve walked across here, so therefore it\u2019s great,\u201d said one member of the large group of walkers who joined Sturgeon.
