In August 2021, Network Rail submitted a pre-application notice to City of Edinburgh Council for revised proposals to install a bridge walk and visitor hub at the iconic Forth Bridge.
The revised proposals include a low-level reception hub to the east of the Forth Bridge, sympathetically positioned in the landscape and offering stunning views of the iconic heritage structure, whilst minimising the impact on the surrounding environment.
As part of the pre-application process, the Network Rail project team hosted three community drop-ins in September. The drop-ins were well attended and provided members of the community with an opportunity to find out more about the proposals and ask questions.
A full planning application, including plans, artist impressions and outline designs will be submitted in the coming weeks.
