    Yes that's correct, presumably because it will be a fully fledged part of a motorway with a 70mph limit etc.

    Ok fair enough, the SNP, a couple of minor parties and a handful of disaffected MPs from the 2nd and 3rd parties will seek independence, but still more correct than saying Scotland will seek independence. At best a little over half of Scotland want independence depending on which polls you choose to look at.

    Re: Queensferry Crossing

    Rumour now is that it's opening tomorrow so they can say it opened in August but will be fully or partially closed next week so they can finish it....

    They will continue to use the existing Forth Road Bridge.

    We had a bypass where I live where that happened. Presumably it ticks the boxes for the contractors and politicians. A little empty when you can't use it though.

    50,000 folk walking across it at the weekend, they must be allowing a couple of days after to pick up all the rubbish they discard.

    Sounds like you will not get a view when you drive across due to 3m high wind barriers.
    It will be like driving in a roofless box.

    The wind barriers are not solid, you'll be able to see through.

    Re: Queensferry Crossing

    We hope to drive across it tomorrow, if it's open. I remember driving my 1955 Austin A30 across the old forth road bridge, the day it opened 53 years ago.
    We had to que for miles, then wait to pay at the toll booths.
