Roadworks around Forth Road Bridge and Ferrytoll Park and Ride

The Forth Road Bridge.

Ferrytoll Park and Ride will be closed overnight from Friday evening in preparation for the Forth Road Bridge’s transformation to a public transport corridor.

A Transport Scotland spokeswoman said the work involved resurfacing and white line painting for the final connections to the public transport slip road.

“We have planned these works to cause minimal disruption but would remind road users to plan their journeys in advance, checking Traffic Scotland and local radio for updates.”

Stagecoach East Scotland have reminded customers of the overnight closures affecting services using the park and ride this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The buildings, car park and bus concourse will be closed from 11pm to 6am meaning that customers will not be able to leave or return their cars during this time.

Despite the overnight closure, Ferrytoll will remain open and accessible during the remainder of the day and customers can continue to leave their car overnight, provided they do not require to pick up or drop off vehicles/passengers while it will be shut.

The concourse was recently expanded as part of the ongoing works in the area, providing increased space for vehicles using the site, which will prevent congestion and make it easier for customers to see their bus approaching.

The seven-day parking limit was also recently lifted so that customers can park for free for longer periods.

Stagecoach is keen to encourage customers to continue to use the site to prevent any potential overcrowding at Halbeath Park and Ride.

Commercial director Douglas Robertson said: ” Although there will be short overnight periods this weekend when Ferrytoll will be closed and no access will be possible, during the day it’s business as usual so we hope the overnight closure doesn’t cause an issue for our regular customers.”

At present, bus and coach services operating between Fife and Edinburgh on the Express City Connect network are using the Ferrytoll site as normal then joining the new Queensferry Crossing.

All traffic is currently using the new bridge, but later this year, the Forth Road Bridge will reopen as a dedicated route for public transport.
