1 )A new system for gathering tolls and traffic management has been introduced on the Forth Road Bridge. Modern tollbooths costing £4m have been built a few metres from the old ones, which will now be removed. However, the Forth Estuary Transport Authority (Feta) said the investment would not make journeys over the bridge any quicker. A spokesman said it would make managing traffic flows and toll collection easier.
----------------- 2) MSPs have voted to scrap tolls on the Forth and Tay road bridges.
3) There will be further roadworks on the approaches to the bridge in December, when work to remove the toll booths begins.
The suspension cables are corroding due to ingress of moisture and monitoring devices detect the individual strands snapping. There will have to be weight restrictions in a few years time unless a cure is found.

I'm Scottish and all I can say is its typical political nonsense and a waste of money. Can't say I'm surprised though. In my defence I voted for the other chap. Mind you thats not to say he wouldn't have spend more doing something else equally meaningless.
