TRAFFIC delays for the Queensferry Crossing are set to continue over the weekend.

This will be the first weekend where the bridge has been fully open to traffic.

West Fife commuters are being advised to plan their journey ahead of time and continue to monitor online traffic road updates.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “The Queensferry Crossing is now in only its fourth full day of operation, having been open on August 30 and 31st, closed for events on September 1st to 5th and reopened on September 7th so we are still very much in the initial phase.

“It's normal that major bridges experience significant extra traffic flows on the initial opening days as people come to see them for the first time.

"It is also normal for this to wear off soon although the first couple of weekends may also be busier than usual particularly during spells of good weather. We recommend people plan their journeys in advance and check Traffic Scotland for the latest position on the roads before starting their journey.”
