To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the date the Forth Replacement Crossing will be (a) completed and (b) open to the public, and how this compares with the initial projected date.

Answered by: Keith Brown 9 March 2017

The contractual completion date for the Forth Replacement Crossing is June 2017. It is targeted to open to traffic in May 2017. Until June 2016 the contractors original target date for the opening of the Forth Replacement Crossing project was December 2016, 6 months ahead of the contractual completion date.
