Forth Replacement Crossing (FRC) – Federation of Small Businesses – Joint Statement
The Forth Replacement Crossing (FRC) is a major infrastructure project for Scotland, designed to safeguard a vital connection in the country's transport network. Aside from the obvious economic benefits that this will bring for many decades to come, it important that, in the shorter term, we also realise the maximum community benefits for those local areas near to the works. Therefore, during the lifetime of the project, Fife Council and Edinburgh City Council, in partnership with key stakeholders representing interests from both north and south of the Forth, will work closely with the consortium, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) to offer a variety of business supply chain, education, training and employment opportunities, including site-based training, student work placements, visits, lectures and sponsorship of special projects. Fife Council, Enterprise and Protective Services, acting as lead coordinator will be in a position over the coming weeks to advise on stakeholder and business information events to be held later in the autumn, in conjunction with Fife Chamber of Commerce.
