Forth Road Bridge lorry chaos driver in court

A man has been charged with dangerous driving after a lorry overturned on the Forth Road Bridge on Tuesday, 14th March.

As a result of this incident, the bridge was closed in both directions for around three and a half hours until the vehicle was safely recovered.

It caused chaos across the road networks in central Scotland with some drivers caught in a six-hour detour to the Kincardine Bridge which was closed northbound.  Glasgow, Perth, Edinburgh, Falkirk and Stirling road users felt the far-reaching effects of the closure and resulting miles of queuing traffic.

The bridge operator said warning signs were in place instructing high-sided vehicles not to cross because of high winds.

The 56-year-old was scheduled to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday, 15th March.
