The new Forth Crossing

continues to move ahead at pace but questions are being asked on the disruption it 
poses to the local community.

Local concern group, the Bridge Replacement Interest Group South (BRIGS) is keen to hear from residents whose lives are being impacted by the Forth Crossing project.

The group was set up five years ago with its remit 
to monitor construction 
works in and around the Queensferry and Kirkliston areas.

The group will host its annual general meeting on Tuesday, April 14, at 7pm in Queensferry Parish Church hall and concerned members of the public are invited to 

Doug Tait, chairman of BRIGS, said: ‘‘While much of the major construction in and around Queensferry has been completed, there is still plenty of work to be carried out.

‘‘There are a number of
issues which have been raised recently such as the possible siting of traffic lights at 
Echline Corner; ‘pecking’ at Echline Corner; continued works on the B800 impacting on residents at Scotstoun; drainage and pavements on the A904 not being repaired.’’

If you have a concern have your say at the annual general meeting.

BRIGS aims to raise any local issues with Transport Scotland which is responsible for delivering the Forth Crossing.
