Forth Road Bridge Act 2013

Section 4 – Dissolution of Forth Estuary Transport Authority

12.Once the road over the FRB has been trunked and the property and assets of FETA have been transferred to the Scottish Government, FETA will no longer have any functions or purpose. The Act will therefore dissolve FETA.

13.FETA was established by the Forth Estuary Transport Authority Order 2002(3) (the 2002 Order). The Forth Road Bridge Confirmation Acts contain the residual powers inherited by FETA from its predecessor the Joint Board. As the Scottish Government has the authority to undertake the functions carried out by FETA, the 2002 Order and Confirmation Acts are no longer required.
