Forth Bridge visitor centre move a ‘step’ closer

Forth Bridge visitor centre move a ‘step’ closerPlans for a Forth Bridge visitor centre (and a bridge walk experience) moved a step closer to reality earlier this month, with Network Rail’s proposals receiving planning permission from Edinburgh’s City Council.

Network Rail submitted its proposals for the new hub at the iconic bridge (which celebrated its 130th anniversary on 4 March) to the council last September (www.networkrail.co.uk).

Under the plans, the public will be able to access the world-famous structure and explore its heritage (and enjoy the view from 367ft above sea level).

The proposals will see the construction of a bridge walk and reception hub on the south side of the UNESCO World Heritage site, which will be used to prepare those heading out on the bridge walk.

Groups of 12-15 people will put on safety harnesses before being led out onto the bridge’s south cantilever and using walkways built into the structure to reach a viewing point at the top.

Up to three groups an hour will be permitted onto the bridge, with each tour expected to last around 2.5hr.

There is a longer-term plan to create visitor facilities at the north end of the bridge; this could result in access to the top of the north cantilever, via a lift.
