The Forth Estuary Transport Board are considering proposals to open up the inner workings of the Forth Road Bridge to the public between 26-31 October
A new report to the Forth Estuary Transport Authority has recommended holding a week-long public exhibition combined with school and community visits during the week 26 – 31 October.
On Saturday 31 October it is proposed to offer guided tours of the bridge by minibus, including visits to the cable anchorages.
FETA Convener Phil Wheeler said: “The Forth Road Bridge is an iconic structure that everyone in Scotland can be proud of. There’s a wonderful story to tell and we now want to open our doors to the local community and anyone else who uses the bridge.
“This would be a rare opportunity for members of the public to get a close-up look at the excellent work carried out by the men and women who look after the bridge, in all weathers, at all times of day and night, and usually at great height or in confined spaces.”
The FETA board will consider the proposal at their next meeting on 28 August.
