Third bridge over the Firth of Forth opens

August 30, 2017 -- The new Queensferry Crossing over the Firth of Forth is scheduled to open to road traffic. The 2.7km structure will be the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world and also the largest to feature cables which cross mid-span. It forms part of Scotland’s east coast transport corridor and runs alongside the venerable Forth Rail Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge, which will be dedicated to public transport, cycling and walking.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
