A BROKEN DOWN lorry has caused significant delays on the M90 southbound this afternoon. 

The vehicle broke down in lane two of the Queensferry Crossing southbound earlier this morning and traffic is still being affected almost five hours later. 

Along with the broken down lorry, a shed load has also prohibited the flow of traffic, Fife Road Police shared that they were dealing with a tractor that had fallen off of an HGV on the southbound carriage of the Queensferry Crossing. 

While the lane has now reopened, traffic is still heavy over the bridge and is slowing back past Halbeath with an approximate delay of 25 minutes in place.
