Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Weekend roadworks at M90 Junctions 2a-3 – 15-18 March - CANCELLED

These works have been cancelled due to a poor weather forecast. They will be rescheduled for a later date, to be communicated in due course.

Overnight works at M90 J1c Southbound on-slip – 19-21 March

The southbound slip road onto the M90 at Junction 1c Admiralty will be closed from 20:00 until 06:00 on the nights of Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 March.

This is to allow operating company Amey to carry out sign replacement works.

A diversion will be signposted via the M90 northbound and the A823(M) to Pitreavie, returning to the M90 southbound at Junction 2.

These works have been planned overnight to minimise disruption and are not expected to cause significant delays. Motorists planning to use this route are advised to allow a few extra minutes for their journey.

Forth Road Bridge expansion joint replacement

Work on site to replace the main expansion joints on the Forth Road Bridge commenced on Monday 12 November.

This major project will see all of the bridge’s main expansion joints replaced over the course of the next twelve months, starting with joints in the east footpath.

The east footpath will be closed to the public from Monday 12 November until mid March 2019, with pedestrians and cyclists directed to use the west footpath instead.

Work on the much larger joints in the main carriageways is expected to begin in March 2019. Traffic on the bridge will be restricted to a single lane in each direction for most of 2019 while work on the carriageways is in progress. Joints in the west footpath will be replaced once work on the carriageways is complete.

Journey times for vehicles using the public transport corridor over the Forth Road Bridge will not be affected by these works, and no diversions will be required.

Forth Replacement Crossing works

Various works are ongoing on and around the Queensferry Crossing as part of the Forth Replacement Crossing project. These are the responsibility of Transport Scotland's contractor FCBC, and work requiring lane closures will normally be carried out overnight between 20:00 and 06:00.
