FIRTH OF FORTH

FORTH BRIDGES FESTIVAL – FIREWORKS

SATURDAY 13th SEPTEMBER 2014

On Saturday the 13th September 2014, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge, a Torchlight Precession will cross the bridge which will be expected to comprise of approximately 2000 burning-torch-bearing participants on foot. This will culminate in a short firework display, which will be rigged along the full length of the bridge. The firework display is scheduled to commence at 22:06 and last approximately 8 minutes.

A river closure will be implemented at the Forth Road Bridge between 20:00 & 22:30. As a measure of prudence against the potential of falling debris, this will be augmented by event organiser safety boat cover (x3), monitoring an exclusion zone either side of the bridge as follows:

20:00 – 21:30         Torchlight Precession      50m exclusion either side of Road Bridge

22:00 – 22:30         Firework Display            500m exclusion either side of Road Bridge
