The Forth Replacement Crossing (FRC) is a major infrastructure construction project for Scotland, intended to safeguard a vital connection in the road network. A new crossing was deemed necessary to replace the Forth Road Bridge following discovery of cable corrision which suggested limited capability in the near future. After completion of the FRC, the Forth Road Bridge will only remain open for journeys made on foot, by bicycle or on registered buses and taxis.

If you are interested in the changes to traffic volume and HGV numbers on Builyeon Road resulting from the new slip roads on junction 1A of the M9, data from the counter just east of Newton can be downloaded fom the link here.The slip roads opened in February 2013.
This map shows the locations of southern traffic counters which are being monitored by Transport Scotland during construction of the bridge.
You can see the speed of traffic on Builyeon Road during May and June 2012 by downloading these eastbound and westbound files. Traffic speed was recorded by equipment provided by City of Edinburgh Council which also displayed a warning to drivers of vehicles travelling over 30 mph. In terms of vehicle count, the results are inconsistent with the Newton monitor but the speed equipment is probably less accurate for this purpose.
