The Forth Railway Bridge (on the right) is now complemented by two striking road bridges on the left. They all make the crossing from the Edinburgh side of the River Forth (south) to Fife (north). The classic railway bridge is often considered a symbol of Scotland, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Construction started in 1882 and the bridge was opened in 1890. Today, almost 200 trains cross the bridge daily.
