Scotland's Traffic Latest

Forth Bridge

The closure of Forth Road Bridge has resulted in major traffic problems and with more bad weather expected throughout December, it looks like it's going to get even worse on the roads.


This is the traffic management plan in place around the Kincardine and Clackmannanshire Bridges, to deal with the surge in traffic due to the Forth Road Bridge closure.
