How do I navigate the website?

We've designed the homepage, the section landing pages and the navigation to make the website easy to use.

The main navigation - the links found on the left hand side of your screen - takes you straight to the main content of the website: Projects, Public Transport, Road, Rail, Water, Air, Environment, Publications & Stats, News, About us, Contact us.

In each of the sections you will find categorised and grouped links for that whole area. Simply click on any of the titles to access full details.

In addition, each of the pages feature secondary navigation - at the very bottom of each page - which provides direct links to supporting information: CareersContact usAccessibility, Help, Freedom of InformationTerms & Conditions.

Finally, you can also see where you are by using the "bread-crumb trail" - this the small text above the page heading showing your path from the homepage.

How do I use the search features?

There are a number of ways to search the website for specific information. The first way to search the website is to use the "Search" feature - this can be found at the top left of every page, just above the main navigation. Simply enter in the word or phrase you want to find then press the "Search" icon. You will then be presented with a summary of all the available information. Once again, find the page that interests you and click on the link to be taken through to more information.

In the event that you don't get any results try searching again, but try alternative spellings, or related topics e.g. for Forth Road Bridge, try "Queensferry" or "Fife".

There are a number of advanced searches in the website to help find specific information. These can be found in the Project, News and Publications & Statistics sections on the top of your page.
