Nicola Sturgeon denies Forth Road Bridge maintenance cuts led to closure

#AceScotsmanNews – Dec.08: First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said it is “absolutely” not true that cuts to maintenance budgets led to the closure of the Forth Road Bridge.

The bridge will be closed to all traffic until the new year after a defect was found in one of the support beams on the north tower.

Ms Sturgeon said all maintenance that had been required to be done on the bridge had been done.

She said the crack that resulted in the bridge closure was “unforeseeable“.

The bridge was closed on Friday after a failure of the “inner link support beam to the North east tower truss end link“.
