Fife And The Forth Road Bridge Closure

 

The closure of the Forth Road Bridge in December 2015 temporarily broke the link between residents in Fife and socioeconomic opportunities in Edinburgh and beyond.

The Carnegie UK Trust commissioned a representative poll with 500 residents in Fife, conducted an online survey with 63 Fife-based businesses, and collected other data sources to publish a new short report on the impact of the closure on how residents in Fife worked, travelled, consumed goods and services, and pursued leisure activities during this period, and the impact on local businesses as traders and employers.

The report provides insight into the opportunities available to develop more prosperous and resilient town communities across the UK.
