Phased reintroduction of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) to the Forth Road Bridge is due to begin tonight (Thursday 4 February)
Structural monitoring installed at the truss end links of the structure show the bridge can now allow a limited number of HGVs to cross – up to around 600 northbound between 11 pm and 4 am nightly, starting February 4, 2016 subject to weather conditions.

Following the publication of the Travel Plan to address the necessary Forth Road Bridge closure last week, further enhancements will come into effect which will benefit local businesses and communities, Transport Minister Derek Mackay announced today.
A dedicated Heavy Goods Vehicle/buses only corridor on the A985 will now be open to all light goods vehicles around the clock starting this Monday, with any restrictions lifted at weekends to provide full access to the A985 to all vehicles.
