Queensferry Crossing lights

Since the opening of the Ward 6 bridge (sometimes referred to as the Queensferry Crossing) snagging has been an ongoing process as with any large-scale civil engineering project. We are pleased to see the initial congestion experienced in the weeks following opening have subsided and traffic is generally flowing much better. Among the issues we have had put to us is the strength, positioning and orientation of the lighting at either end of the bridge. Of particular concern have been reports that the lighting causes a strobing effect and is having an impact on some people’s health.  We have written to Transport Scotland and have been assured the lighting conforms to necessary standards but that they will be reviewed.
