The Queensferry Crossing has reopened after falling ice forced its first closure since it started operating in 2017.
Operators Amey shut the £1.35 billion bridge over the Forth on Monday night amid severe weather and concerns for safety.
Up to eight vehicles were damaged as a result of the ice falls but no-one is thought to have been injured.
It was deemed the bridge was safe to reopen at 10.45am on Wednesday.
Mark Arndt, account director for Amey, said: “We thank drivers for their patience and understanding during this closure.
“Safety had to come first, however, the data we have gathered has improved our understanding of the issue and will help us to improve predictions and refine operating procedures in future.”
A build-up of ice on towers and cables was said to have formed in “unique weather conditions” following Storm Ciara.
Motorists had to cross the Forth via the Kincardine Bridge – a 35-mile diversion – due to the closure.
The Scottish Government was criticised by the Scottish Conservatives for its alleged failure to address the issue.
Transport Secretary Michael Matheson said there have been approximately 30 occasions where the new bridge has remained open when its predecessor would have been partially or fully shut.
He added further investigation of the incident was needed.
