Overnight Roadworks on Forth Road Bridge: Possible Delays Sunday Morning
11 May 2016
A contraflow will be in operation on the Forth Road Bridge from 7 p.m. on Saturday 14 May until 10:30 a.m. on Sunday 15 May, with traffic restricted to a single lane in each direction.
These restrictions are necessary to allow essential permanent repairs to the reinforced concrete deck slab, waterproofing and surfacing on the northbound carriageway. An extended overnight closure is required in order to provide enough time for the concrete to gain strength and resurfacing/waterproofing materials to set.
Mark Arndt, Amey’s Operating Company Representative for the Forth Bridges Unit, said: “We’ve scheduled these repairs for a Sunday morning in order to minimise disruption to traffic. Nevertheless, some delays are still possible towards the end of the roadworks, so we recommend allowing some extra time for your journey if that’s when you need to cross the bridge.”
