BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, is planning to carry out a trial diversion of traffic from the M90 Queensferry Crossing over the Forth Road Bridge A9000 overnight on Saturday 11th December 2021.
The works have been programmed to ensure the safety of road users and operational staff, whilst minimising disruption to travellers.
Traffic using the M90 will be diverted over the Forth Road Bridge on the night of Saturday 11 December, in a trial of measures designed to speed up the process if the Queensferry Crossing needs to be closed.
From 22:00 on Saturday 11 December, southbound traffic on the M90 will be diverted off the motorway at Junction 1B Ferrytoll, before crossing the Ferrytoll Roundabout and joining the Forth Road Bridge via the A9000, which is normally reserved for public transport.
During this diversion there will be no access to the Ferrytoll Roundabout eastbound from the B981 or westbound from Hope Street, Inverkeithing. Local traffic will be required to access the M90 via Junction 1C Admiralty.
Northbound traffic on the M90 will be diverted off the motorway at Junction 1A Queensferry, then along the A904 Builyeon Road to join the Forth Road Bridge from the Echline Roundabout.
The Queensferry Crossing will be reopened by 06:00 on Sunday 12 December, at the latest.
