West Fifers were hit by the disastrous Forth Road Bridge closure last December. Scottish Lib Dem candidate James Calder is calling for the Scottish Government to ensure that local businesses are properly compensated and that all of the bridges over the Forth are properly funded and maintained.

James has said, “It’s not enough to push under the carpet the issue of the Forth Road Bridge. We cannot afford to have a repeat in the future, including when the Queensferry Crossing is completed. Lessons must be learned and maintenance funding should be enough the Forth Bridges.

“We also need to make sure all businesses in Fife that have been hit by this are properly compensated. If elected I will continuously work to ensure the Bridges are given the support they need.”
