Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Forth Road Bridge expansion joint replacement

Work on site to replace the main expansion joints on the Forth Road Bridge commenced on 12 November 2018.

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

Traffic on the bridge will be restricted to a single lane in each direction for most of 2019 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.

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.
