8. The Forth Bridge experience
Ian Heigh

For the first time in the bridge’s history, the public will be able to access the world-famous structure and explore its heritage as well as the outstanding views from 110m above sea level. Plans will see the construction of a Bridge Walk Reception Hub on the South Queensferry side of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which will be used for preparing those heading out on the bridge walk as well as providing physical access to the bridge. The proposals will be delivered with consideration for the bridge’s world heritage status and will set out to further the aims of UNESCO in helping to interpret the history and heritage of the Forth Bridge.
