To strengthen, refurbish and improve

Last updated on 25 May 2011

Maintenance on the Forth Road Bridge is ongoing and proactive. Whether the focus is on long-term strengthening and improvement, repair and replacement of bridge components and surfacing, or painting and other preventative treatments, the aim is the same – to maximise traffic flow and minimise safety risks.

To keep the crossing safe and open to traffic for the 21st century, a 15-year capital investment programme worth well over £100 million is now under way.

Explore the links in this section for details of current works on site and other planned capital projects, as well as opportunities to bid for contracts.
