I am just double checking things now. As far as I can make out the new
bridge is as Tom said the M90 but with a 40mph speed limit until
October. 

To make things more complicated the Queensferry Crossing is open for 2
days, then closed for 6 before re-opening. My thinking is to leave it as
open rather than close it for 6 days. 

The old bridge is effectively closed to all motor traffic, until
October/November... 

Usefully one of the colleagues filmed the crossing this morning:
