Forth Road Bridge: Free tours and chance to win trip to top of one of bridge’s main tower

The Forth Road Bridge is to open its doors to the public next month - with free guided tours to parts of the structure normally hidden from view, and the chance to win a trip to the top of one of the main towers.

The landmark structure forms part of Doors Open Day, and the tours are free.

They take place on Saturday, September 24 when the Forth Bridges exhibition at Transport Scotland’s Contact and Education Centre will also be open to the public and feature special exhibits and educational activities.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s operating company representative for South East Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome visitors back to the Forth Road Bridge on Doors Open Day after having to close our doors during the pandemic.

“Our guided minibus tours will give the public a rare chance to visit parts of this famous bridge normally hidden from view, and to hear from experienced members of staff who have worked on the structure for many years.”

Guided minibus tours will depart every 15 minutes from the bridge office in South Queensferry. Tours will last one hour, stopping at points of interest along the deck before visiting one of the anchorage chambers on the north side of the bridge.
