THE Forth Road Bridge will partially reopen and carry scheduled public buses on Friday 13th October.

The Forth Road Bridge has been closed since the official of the new Queensferry Crossing.

A contraflow arrangement will be in place for the first few weeks of the bridge reopening.

For now, other buses, taxis and motorcycles will continue to use Queensferry Crossing until the public transport corridor is commissioned in the coming weeks.

Now sitting at 40mph, the speed limit is expected to the lifted to 50mph in the near future, with motorway regulations coming into place later in the year.

Paul Thomas, Stagecoach East Scotland Managing Director said: “The phased re-opening of the Forth Road Bridge will mean that we will be able to revert back to normal stopping arrangements for services X51, X55 and 747 as these routes can serve the bus stops at the south of the bridge, then divert via southbound bus lane or A904 to re-join the M90 for onward travel to Edinburgh/Airport.

Our services not scheduled to use these stops (X5, X9, X54, X56, X58, X59) will continue to use the Queensferry Crossing at present.”
