Answered by: Humza Yousaf 28 September 2017

On 20 July 2017, The Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work wrote to the Convenor of the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee and gave a commitment to provide an update on the Queensferry Crossing Opening
Celebrations and overall summary of costs in due course. This remains the case
and we will contact the Committee again as soon as we are in a position to
provide this information.

The FRC project is being delivered at £245 million under the budget set at the start of construction in Summer 2011.
