Planned roadworks

This page lists roadworks planned within the Forth Bridges Unit.

Weekend roadworks at M90 Junction 2A-3: 31 August and 1 September

Motorists are advised to expect delays on the M90 over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September, when traffic will be restricted to a single lane in each direction between Junctions 2a and 3.

This is to allow operating company Amey to resurface the northbound carriageway.

From 00:00 on Saturday 31 August until 00:00 on Monday 2 September (48 hours) a contra flow will be in operation between M90 Junctions 2a and 3.

The northbound off-slip at M90 Junction 3 Halbeath will be closed during these works. A diversion route for traffic that would normally leave the motorway at M90 Junction 3 will be signposted from M90 Junction 2 Pitreavie Interchange via the A823(M), the A823 Queensferry Road and the A907 Halbeath Road.

These works have been planned for the weekend to minimise disruption, however traffic delays are expected. Motorists planning to use this route are advised to allow extra time 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 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.
