The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge over the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, to the east of the Forth Road Bridge, and 9 miles north west of central Edinburgh. It is often called the Forth Rail Bridge to distinguish it from the Forth Road Bridge, but should correctly be referred to as the Forth Bridge. It connects Edinburgh with Fife, and acts as a major artery connecting the north-east and south-east of the country. Construction began in 1883 and was formally completed on 4 March 1890 when HRH Edward Prince of Wales tapped into place a ‘golden’ rivet.
