The centre tower deck of the Queensferry Crossing in Scotland as been recognised by Guinness World Records as the largest freestanding balanced cantilever in the world. The bridge’s central deck is now complete but still free standing and this 644m-long cantilever itself will not last long.

Soon, it will be connected to the flanking towers and viaducts to form the final superstructure.

However, experts at Guinness World Records have inspected and officially ratified the record while the deck is in this world-record breaking but still temporary state. This film from Transport Scotland shows new drone footage of the current status of the bridge.
