    Re: Queensferry Crossing

    From a programme I was watching on the box. The new design will allow faster traffic because there will be fewer times when the speed will be restricted by high winds.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    Yes but that's a tiny proportion of current traffic so unless it encourages people out of their cars....

    Hmm... that's not going to help most days though.

    Obviously we needed a new bridge due to the increasing dilapidation of the old one but I'm struggling to get my head round claims of decreased congestion. However, I will live in hope but perhaps not as much as my colleagues from fife who face the bridge on a daily basis.

    Someone told me there will be hard shoulders allowing obstructing vehicles to be removed which may help things a touch, though not drastically.

    Queensferry is named after 11th century Queen Margaret of Scotland
    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is Queen of Scots.
    Scotland will seek independence from the United Kingdom.

    Good try, could do better.

    It was two English men who designed the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge was designed by Englishmen as well.
