The bus operator says routes will be diverted, delayed or unable to operate because of road closures due to the UCI Cycling World Championships and associated races.

The 8A, 19, X54, X55, X58A, X59 and 747 services will either divert or not operate.

Stagecoach East Scotland's Operations Director, David Frenz, said: “The upcoming UCI Cycling World Championships will see some of the world’s greatest cyclists competing on our roads.

"As a result of the associated road closures, some of our services will need to divert and some will not be able to operate for part of the day. There are also likely to be delays across our network of services.

"Full details of the disruption to our services can be found on our website and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes you."

As reported previously by the Press, the event will see the Queensferry Crossing shut for a short period of time.

Motorists have been advised to steer clear and there will also be traffic disruption and rolling road closures in West Fife as the men's elite road race speeds through the Kingdom on Sunday.

The single biggest cycling event in history will bring together 13 world championships in one host country for the first time, with the sport's finest competitors set to wow Scottish crowds over 11 days of action.

Two bridges over the Forth, the M90 motorway and the A985 and A876 trunk roads are among those set to be affected, as well as local roads in Rosyth, Torryburn, Newmills, Low Valleyfield, Culross and Kincardine.

On entering the Kingdom the cyclists will race along: Ferrytoll Road, Castle Road and Hilton Road, Rosyth; the A985 to Craigwell Path, Crombie; Cairneyhill Roundabout; the B9037 through Main Street in Torryburn to Main Street in Newmills; Main Street and Low Causeway, Low Valleyfield; Low Causeway to Sandhaven to Balgonie West, Culross; the C5 Culross road to Longannet Roundabout and Toll Road, Kincardine; Feregait in Kincardine to Kilbagie Roundabout and onto the Clackmannanshire Bridge.

Spectators can attend the men's elite road race in West Fife but must be in place before 10am and stand on recognised footways as there are no designated viewing points.

No vehicles are to be parked on the route which will be a tow-away zone.
