Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Overnight roadworks on A92 westbound - 27-28 November

The A92 will be closed westbound at Crossgates Junction from 20:00 until 06:00 on the nights of Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 November.

A diversion will be signposted via the Crossgates roundabout and M90 Junction 3 Halbeath.

These works have been planned overnight to minimise disruption and are not expected to cause significant delays.

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 late January 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 late January. 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.
