Latest Forth Replacement Crossing plans go on display

A series of community information displays setting out landscaping and other mitigation measures to be introduced once work commences on the construction of the Forth Replacement Crossing will be open to the public this week.

The displays will be on show at various libraries and community centres in the vicinity of the work and highlight the project developments following feedback received since the public exhibitions in January this year.

Guidance on compulsory purchase, compensation and the parliamentary process for the project will also be available.

Stewart Stevenson, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, said: “We are now entering the final designs stages of the project, prior to putting forward our final proposals for the Parliamentary Bill later this year.

“Since January, we have been developing the mitigation and landscaping proposals, taking on board views received through the exhibitions and meetings held with residents over the summer.

“The Scottish Government will deliver a new Forth Crossing on time and on budget using our own resources by 2016 at a cost of between £1.7 - £2.3 billion and public engagement continues to be at the heart of how the scheme is being developed.

“These displays demonstrate our intention to ensure communities are fully informed at every stage of this vital project.”

While interested parties will be able to view the displays for two weeks from Wednesday at a variety of locations, the content for the displays will be available on the project website – – from Wednesday for those unable to attend.
