Queensferry Crossing speed limit to be raised to 50mph
The new bridge over the Forth will have its 40mph limit increased on Monday morning.
The speed limit on the Queensferry Crossing will be raised to 50mph before Monday morning's rush hour.
The current 40mph speed limit over the new bridge across the Forth is in place for the safety of construction workers on surrounding roads.
As the work nears completion, the M90 between Scotstoun in the south and Admiralty in the north will have a 50mph limit from Monday morning.
Once the bridge is a fully operational motorway, it will have a speed limit of 70mph.
In October, the Forth Road Bridge was reopened for buses after it had been closed for a month.
Taxis and motorcycles will also be able to use the older bridge at a later date.
There were lengthy queues around the Queensferry Crossing after it officially opened in September, with "tourist traffic" blamed for the congestion.
Traffic Scotland operator manager Stein Connelly said: "The new 50mph speed limit on the Queensferry Crossing will be in place for the Monday morning peak and drivers will be advised by our signs on the approach roads.
"As always, we would urge road users to be aware of the change and take care as they get used to the new limit.
"Traffic Scotland will have all of the latest real-time travel information on our mobile site , twitter feed and radio."
