May The Forth Be With You Again By January

The Forth Bridge has been shut down temporarily with estimates suggesting it will be closed until the New Year. William Hill are betting on when it will reopen for public use and it is odds on at 4/5 that it opens in January 2016. It is 11/4 to open in February. It looks unlikely that the work will be completed before time with 3/1 offered while March or later is 6/1.


“The Forth looks likely to be with us again in January but there is every chance the works could go on longer,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


When will the Forth Bridge reopen for public access: 3/1 December 15; 4/5 January 16; 11/4 February 16; 6/1 March 16 or later]
