Why We Are Consulting

Traffic regulations are being prepared which are required to be laid before the Scottish Parliament after the 2016 summer recess in order to come into force for the opening of the Queensferry Crossing. A mandatory requirement of the regulations is that the provisions to be included in the regulations are subject to consultation.
