New Forth Road Bridge Closed, old one reopens

Recommended Posts

I live in Cumbernauld and work in Kinross.

I could fucking greet, going to be absolute misery.

You'll be travelling the opposite way to all this traffic, no?

Eta: Or is the Kincardine bridge being turned into a one-way dual carriageway or whatever, still leaving the Clackmannan open for you?

I hope all these drivers set off 2 hours earlier whilst the bridge is shut.

I set off an hour earlier today. A journey which usually takes somewhere between 45 minutes and an hour took two and a half hours. :lol:

Apparently the bridge might be shut until the new year. :lol::lol:

Or longer .. :lol::lol::lol:

What fun.

What part of the bridge is causing concern?

The bit that goes over the water.

Wouldn't you just normally go the Kincardine way anyway? Up the A977?

Transport Scotland Tweeting about high winds on the Skye bridge merely restricting traffic in both directions.

Yeah, I go that way then over the Clackmannan Bridge but with all the additional traffic on that road it's going to be a mire.

Been doing the same commute for a few years, have seen it when the FRB is shut as a one off taking me nearly two hours to get back, even when closed to high sided vehicles it has a knock on effect. Not looking forward to it.

I would have thought so, but the sheer volume of extra traffic will presumably create further problems.

In fact will the Kincardine Bridge cope with extra strain?

It will probably be quicker extending the tram line to Inverkeithing. Expect the new bridge to open early and the existing one to be closed until them. :rolleyes:

ETA: I blame Edinburgh Cooncil for their short-sightedness.

Fife should seize the opportunity to claim independence and close the borders.

The couldn't do it the last they were offered!!!

f**k the fifers ! What about the Perthshire commuters ?

I'd rather take a chance on it falling down while I'm on it than going either the Kincardine or Stirling way.
