Forth Road Bridge reopening to buses after closure
Taxis, bikes and motorcycles will return to the crossing at a later date.
The Forth Road Bridge wil reopen to buses more than a month after it closed to cars.
The 53-year-old span was closed temporarily when the Queensferry Crossing opened in August.
It will reopen to some buses on Friday, followed eventually by taxis, bikes and motorcycles.
A 40mph speed limit is also in place until the bridge is fully operational.
Mark Arndt, from bridge manager Amey, said: "We've been taking advantage of the Forth Road Bridge being closed to traffic by carrying out important trials and investigations on the carriageway, with a view to completely resurfacing it at a future date.
"We've also taken the opportunity to get ahead with steelwork repairs and other maintenance."
"It will be good to see the bridge carrying buses again."
The reopening of the bridge means Stagecoach's X51, X55 and 747 services will return to normal.
Its X5, X9, X54, X56, X58 and X59 buses will continue to use the Queensferry Crossing for now.
