Forth fail­ure

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

If the idea of the new Queens­ferry Cross­ing was to re­lieve the traf­fic jam on the two sides of the Forth bridges, it has failed mis­er­ably on the first day. Go­ing to Ed­in­burgh Air­port to pick up some­body at 7am from Fife yes­ter­day re­sulted in my time be­ing wasted each way.

The queue on re­turn at 9.15am ex­tended to the M90 and Dal­gety Bay on both sides. Clos­ing the Forth Road Bridge was not nec­es­sary for the work­ing trav­ellers – sight­seers could have been di­rected to the Queens­ferry Cross­ing.
