Forth Road Bridge to close tonight
3 December 2015
A full closure of the bridge is being put into effect after midnight on Thursday December 3, 2015.
The Forth Road Bridge (FRB) is to shut following the discovery of defective steelwork earlier this week. The decision has been taken as a precautionary step after inspections carried out earlier this week showing a fault in the bridge steelwork.
The results of earlier inspections will continue to be analysed overnight.
A full update will be provided on Friday December 4, 2015.
