Eerie pictures show Queensferry Crossing and surrounding roads devoid of traffic.
The bridge, which links Fife to the western edge of Edinburgh, is likely to be closed for the whole of Tuesday after eight vehicles were damaged by falling blocks of ice and snow on Monday night.
While traffic congestion is leaving motorists at a near standstill on the diversionary approach to Kincardine Bridge, the M90 and its slip roads in the Inverkeithing, North Queensferry and Queensferry areas are uncharacteristically quiet.
Pictures from Traffic Scotland show the usually bustling area clear of vehicles. These can be seen in the video above this article.
Amey, which operates the Forth Bridges on behalf of Transport Scotland, confirmed eight vehicles suffered damage as a result of falling debris on Monday evening but said no injuries had been reported.
