Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 12 September 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has carried out of traffic flows on the Queensferry Crossing since it opened.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 19 September 2018

Transport Scotland will be undertaking an evaluation of the Forth Replacement Crossing Project, one, three and five years after opening in line with Scottish Trunk Road Infrastructure Project Evaluation, against both the transport planning objectives and wider evaluation criteria. In addition, Transport Scotland is undertaking an evaluation of performance one month after motorway regulations came into effect and will undertake additional evaluation once the Intelligent Transport Systems measures are in operation. These evaluations will consider pre-opening and post-opening traffic data.
