(*US suspension bridge. It used to sway in the wind due to resonance or something. Look up footage on youtube for a laugh)

Those of us in the west will probably remember the Erskine bridge was closed for about 3 weeks in August 1996 after it was hit by an oil rig.


Didn't re-open to HGV's until 22 Dec 1996.


Apparently the Erskine Bridge has a lifespan of 121 years (2092)

It's about 35 minutes in quiet traffic. That's like living in Stenhousemuir and working in Glasgow

35 mins ? Aye on a bicycle maybe. I can do Perth to Leith, car parked etc. In 45 mins when quiet.

That's hardly a prediction, that's like me saying I predict George street is gonna be full of c***s with beards and shit haircuts today.

I cannot comprehend the mindset of someone who would choose to live in Fife as well as making a hellish daily commute to Edinburgh. It's the worst of both worlds

Wait until you have kids. Then you'll comprehend it. Don't worry though, just like people on Death Row, you'll gradually accept your fate.

Who's the SNP(bad) transport minister??

Grrr.

He could probably do with being sacked. The c**t.

First task of the next one should be to sack the senior management who are currently 'looking after' the bridge. Personally, I'd shoot them.

Stalin had the right idea.

Apparently the SNP allowed the bridge maintenance to be privatised. Cost cutting maybe to blame?

Certainly looks like a part of the bridge that's hard to get to never mind repair.

Seems a little bit churlish to complain about cost cutting when they're buying you a brand new bridge

The SNP are? That's very generous of them. I thought it was the taxpayer.

Commuters being advised to use public transport to get to work.

Scotrail advising that travel can't be guaranteed and that passengers should 'make their own arrangements'.

:huh:
