To ask the Scottish Government on what dates ministers requested or were shown a copy of the risk register for the Queensferry Crossing.

Answered by: Keith Brown 18 July 2016

As confirmed by Forth Crossing Bridge Constructor’s (FCBC) and Transport Scotland at the Forth Replacement Crossing Project Technical Briefing you attended on Friday 10 June 2016, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructor’s and Transport Scotland have robust risk registers for the Forth Replacement Crossing Project which are reviewed internally by each organisation on a regular basis and together with other information, these form the basis of reporting to ministers. Ministers receive fortnightly updates on projects which provide details on construction progress, progress against programme and budget position.
