A8000-A90 - Coppermine - 9227.jpg
From the A8000 looking down to the works on the A90 near the Forth Road Bridge.

Works are progressing here to add extra lanes to the A90. Looking in the direction of this picture, the new M9 spur will take the main route off to the right, and the A90 traffic will leave to the left. There will be 3 lanes in each direction from this merge to the bridge. On the southbound A90 carriageway two lanes carry southbound traffic, and one lane northbound. On the northbound (towards the bridge) there is mostly construction site plus one northbound lane.

Looking North from Kirkliston. Roadworks have just started when this picture was taken but at the moment it consists of just a few cones. Check out the dodgy chopsticks symbol on the sign - does the central reservation really get wider?

A90 New Toll Plaza at the Forth Road Bridge

The new toll plaza replacing the booths which have been there for 30+ Years. Note the contraflow on the right hand side where a third lane is being added both ways in preparation for the new M9 spur. The new plaza is now in use after months of toll closures causing longer tailbacks.

A90 approaching the Forth Bridge

5pm on a weekday and traffic heading out of Edinburgh is at a standstill. The roadworks are due to replacement of the tool booths and for some reason a low 30mph limit has been applied which is also in force on the opposite carriageway.
