Responding to new information released to a Scottish Parliament committee revealing the 23 outstanding works on the Queensferry Crossing Edinburgh Western MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said:
"The SNP accused the opposition of talking Scotland down when we questioned whether work on the Queensferry crossing had been completed.
"Scottish Liberal Democrats asked for this information in September but were told commercial sensitivities trumped the public interest in knowing this. A cynic might suggest that the Scottish Government were deliberately avoiding releasing anything that would overshadow their photo opportunity.
"Residents and road users will be hoping that this will not mean further closures and delays. The Scottish Government should be open and transparent about whether this will be case."
