Northbound Erskine Bridge Reopens

13 March

The northbound carriageway of the Erskine Bridge has this morning (Thursday 13th March) fully reopened to traffic.

Favourable weather conditions and the efforts of our hard working teams brought forward the work programme which had forecast an opening of Monday 17th March.

Scotland TranServ, who supervise the works on behalf of Transport Scotland, advise that the Contractor has completed the replacement of both the northbound near and offside vehicle safety barriers.

The Contractor, Highway Barrier Solutions (HBS) installed this major phase of vehicle safety barrier replacement work ahead of schedule, meaning that:

•    traffic has returned to two northbound running lanes,
•    the A726/A898 northbound on-slip has reopened
•    and the northbound diversion routes have ceased.
