First of three weekend closures for demolition work due this weekend
Demolition works essential for the Forth Replacement Crossing project get under way this weekend, with drivers warned to expect “inevitable” disruption.
The work to demolish the old B800 bridge over the A90 south of Echline Junction will take place over weekends October 24/25, October 31/November 1, and November 14/15, 2015.
The A90 and M90 (M9 Spur) will be closed to all traffic south of Echline Junction to allow for the demolition of the bridge. In addition, operators of the Forth Road Bridge (FRB) are taking the opportunity to undertake essential maintenance and a single lane contraflow will be in operation across the bridge.
From 8pm on Saturday October 24, 8 pm Saturday October 31 and 8pm on Saturday November 14 the A90 and M90 (M9 Spur) will be closed in both directions through to a latest re-opening time of 6am on the following Monday mornings. To read more on this article, follow this link.
