“FORTH Bridge red” signs will be a key feature of a new trail linking the bridges and North and South Queensferry.

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, have submitted an application to Fife Council to install signage for visitors as part of a new tourism strategy.

Area tourism strategy manager Karen Stewart said more information would be available as planning progresses.

The first phase will focus on 16 signs across North and South Queensferry and the Forth Road Bridge with QR codes linking to a website and the new Forth Bridges Trail.

These will include new and refurbished existing signs, using “Forth Bridge red” with new maps and graphics in keeping with the location.

This trail uses the new signs as anchor points, encouraging travel to the area by bus or train, in a loop which runs over the Forth Bridge by train, through North and South Queensferry, and across the Forth Road Bridge as well as travelling beneath the bridges on the river.
