With the opening of the Queensferry Crossing as a motorway, the Forth Road Bridge is now a Public Transport Corridor, which continues to be the route for walking and cycling across the Firth of Forth.
The bridges and surrounding road network have been designed to cater for all travel modes by making the most appropriate use of existing and new infrastructure.
There is no pedestrian or cyclist access to the Queensferry Crossing - this is a motorway.
With general traffic removed from the Forth Road Bridge, the experience for pedestrians and cyclists is greatly improved. Walking & cycling on and around the Forth Bridges provides the opportunity to build in physical activity as an everyday trip.
New sections of footpaths, cycleways and safe crossing points have also been introduced as part of the changes to the road network.
