BUSES will be able to use the Forth Road Bridge from to­day in the first phase of its reopening.

The bridge has been closed for road­works since the open­ing of the Queens­ferry Cross­ing.

It will re­open for some bus ser­vices to­day with other buses, taxis and mo­tor­bikes to fol­low at a later date.

Traf­fic Scot­land op­er­a­tor man­ager Stein Con­nelly said: “The trans­fer of pub­lic sched­uled buses on to the Forth Road Bridge marks the next stage of the Queens­ferry Cross­ing project.”

Af­ter con­ges­tion on the £1.35bil­lion new route, Trans­port Scot­land said jour­ney times were re­turn­ing to “more usual lev­els”.

The speed limit on the Queens­ferry Cross­ing is due to rise to 50mph in the com­ing weeks.
