Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Emergency barrier repair at M90 Junction 2 southbound on-slip - Friday 3 April

The slip road from the A823(M) eastbound to the M90 southbound will be closed on the night of Friday 3 April from 20:00 until 06:00. This is to allow operating company Amey to carry out emergency barrier repairs.

A diversion will be signposted via the M90 northbound, turning back onto the M90 southbound at Junction 3 Halbeath.

These works have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption. Motorists travelling during these times are advised to allow a few extra minutes for their journey.

All non-essential operations on the network have been stood down while the current coronavirus restrictions are in place, however these emergency repairs are essential for safety. Work will therefore proceed in strict compliance with Scottish and UK Government guidance on social distancing and hand hygiene.

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 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.
