Amey has released new drone footage of its rope access team inspecting steelwork under the deck of the Forth Bridge.
The bridge will be closed until early January as repairs to truss end links continue.
Over the weekend engineers carried out further controlled tests using lorries, following the installation of structural monitoring systems to assess the behaviour of the bridge.
Amey is also bringing forward several road improvement schemes planned for next year. The schemes will now be completed during the closure.
These include carriageway lining on the A90 from Welldean to Echline and on the M90 Spur from Scotstoun to Humbie rail bridge; and landscaping works to the A90 from Welldean to Echline.
“While our priority is completing the repairs to the damaged truss end link; we are taking advantage of the bridge closure to accelerate works planned for 2016,” said Amey’s Forth Road Bridge account director Mark Arndt. By tackling these schemes now we’re reducing the number of lane and overnight closures required next year, lessening the impact for bridge users – motorists, cyclists and pedestrians – who have already demonstrated great understanding over the need for this extended closure.”
