Queensferry Crossing opening (on M90 page)

Post by wrinkly » Sat Mar 20, 2021 14:55

The M90 page contains a sentence that appears to claim that the Queensferry Crossing was opened 50 years to the day after the Forth Road Bridge. I think the correct figure is 53 years minus a few days - not so memorable.

I could just delete the sentence but it's been there since September 2017 so I thought I'd check first - am I misreading it? Is it trying to say something different from its apparent meaning?

In my view, if it's inaccurate it needs to go!

I deleted the sentence and made some other changes, but like several other pages on motorways, it could benefit from more work.

Thanks for that - yes, there's many pages that could benefit from people getting involved - particularly where we've previously relied on links to other sites that have subsequently disappeared.

Given my work on Glasgow’s Motorways I do have a complete (and accurate!) list of opening dates for the M90 plus several others. Would it be ok for me to add them to the “Opening dates” list on the M90 Page rather than having a link to CBRD which got its Scotland Opening dates from The Motorway Archive, a Good resource but not 100% accurate when it’s comes to Scotland.
