    I was told hgv etc will continue to use the old bridge leaving the new one free for cars and motorbikes.

    Just on the way back from a wee run to Queensferry to see it. The wee car park down at the front between the 3 bridges must have one of the most spectacular views on the planet, an amazing place just to stand and look...

    I remember playing on the M62 when they were building it. That will never close, it will be first trans pennine motorway to stay open 24/7. First year it was open it was the best ice skating rink in the Manchester area. Not a vehicle in site 😁

    Maybe had something to do with crowd control.
    Parking for 100,000 cars at Queensferry could have been problematic.
