Motorists heading north into Fife over the Queensferry Crossing were having to endure queues more than four miles long during Wednesday’s rush hour.

Drivers on the M90 were reporting delays of up to half an hour to get over the bridge at around 5pm, although it is understood there had been no incidents of note to cause the congestion.

The Queensferry Crossing has a 70mph speed limit, which was imposed in December 2017, but many motorists have complained about drivers slowing up prior to reaching the £1.6 billion bridge and causing bottlenecks of this type.

Congestion was expected to ease into the evening.
