Cable inspection on Queensferry crossing to slow traffic

Wednesday August 16th 2023


Written by Midlothian View Reporter, Luke Jackson

A reduced speed limit of 50mph will be in force on the Queensferry Crossing between 08:00 and 18:00 each day from Monday 4th September to Friday 8th September. This is for safety while routine cable inspection works are carried out overhead.

Chris Tracey, BEAR Scotland’s South-East Unit Bridges Manager, said: “The Queensferry Crossing is a complex structure that requires constant inspection, however we’ve planned these works to minimise disruption by ensuring that all lanes remain open to traffic during the day, with a reduced speed limit for safety.”

Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland at, or on Twitter at @trafficscotland.
