Primary school children from East of Scotland schools have had a go at building and testing a cable stayed bridge. Assisted by a team of civil engineers, the 11 and 12 year olds donned their hard hats and safety jackets to build the bridge in Perth High Street, the City Square in Dundee and the North Quay in Montrose. The bridge had a span of 6.5m with an approach ramp of 10.5m and steel supports for a wooden deck.
