Travelling to Dunfermline-a warning

Recommended Posts

the new queensferry crossing is only partly operational.  With the old bridge closed for a month there is still a temporary road layout on the north side.  Tailbacks of 5 miles have not been uncommon and that wont change until the old bridge re-opens and the permanent road layout is in force.

 

Best to cross at Kincardine or better still get a bus from Glasgow Airport that stops right outside East End park (X24,26 or 27).

Cheers.

Good advice. The bus from the airport sounds a decent shout. Any idea if there are many stops en route?

Won't the bus get stuck in the same traffic jam?

Buchanan St, cumbernauld, possibly forth Valley hospital and kincardine. You can get off at dunfermline bus station where there're several decent pubs and a 10 minute walk to the ground or you can stay on to the next stop at the ground

Cheers for info about the bridge, but since I am heading to a miner club in Fauldhouse after the game I will be going over the bridge. My wife and I have had an invite to a book launch by Neil Findley MSP who had been helping my wife at parliament on a health matter for the last 3 years. Hopefully I will be in a good mood when we get there and if not, low prices at the bar should cheer me up :cheers

Depends if the bus goes over the bridge, surely? :blink:


I'd have thought that the Kincardine would be busier than usual if there is chaos at the new bridge.

The bus can only use the same roads as the car you'd be driving in.

So you could just drive your car over the Kincardine then?

 

in the original post, i said travel via kincardine or get the bus.  There are two bridges at Kincardine

 

train is also an option, or you can drive to stirling, perth, or freakin anywhere before heading to dunfermline.

You should go via Warwic, there's a good kHunt

Oh no, you used my alias to abuse me. You must have spent ages thinking that up.

How clever.... 🤡
