A major phase of roadworks in connection with the new Forth Crossing in Queensferry is almost complete.

Works on the new Queensferry Gyratory at Echline was expected to be finished this weekend with 
motorists being able to access the new roundabout from the Bo’ness Road.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “Weather permitting, the new road layout will go live on January 23.

“This will see the closure of the B924 (Bo’ness Road) in its existing state as traffic will be diverted across the new junction from Echline corner, over the new gyratory to travel west on the A904 towards Linlithgow or east towards the Forth Road Bridge.”

The existing B924 will be stopped up with access only to the Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) compound. A section of the A904 (Builyeon Road) will also be stopped up, with traffic diverted onto the new road.

*Transport Scotland and FCBC will be staging project briefing days for the public next Tuesday and Wednesday from 3-4.30pm and 7-8.30pm and an information day on Saturday, January 31 from 10am to 4pm at the Contact and Education Centre at Ferrymuir Gait.
