Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Overnight closures of M90 northbound: 3-8 August

The northbound carriageway of the M90 will be closed between Junction 1C Admiralty and Junction 2 Pitreavie from 20:00 until 06:00 on the nights of 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 August. This is to allow operating company Amey to install traffic loops in the road surface and to renew road markings.

A diversion route for northbound traffic will be signposted from M90 Junction 1C Admiralty to Junction 3 Halbeath via the A985 Admiralty Road, the B980 Kings Road, A823 Queensferry Road, Carnegie Avenue, Lapwing Drive, Sandpiper Drive and Sanderling Way.

Forth Road Bridge expansion joint replacement

This major project will see all of the bridge’s main expansion joints replaced over the course of 2019 and 2020, starting with joints on the east side of the bridge.

Traffic on the bridge will be restricted to a single lane in each direction while work on the carriageway joints is in progress.

The east footpath will be closed to the public for the first part of the project, with pedestrians and cyclists directed to use the west footpath instead. When work on the east side of the bridge is complete and work begins on the west side, the east footpath will reopen and the west footpath will close to the public.

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.
