Work begins on Falkirk's Helix Project
February 2 2011
The scheme is intended to transform the DNA central Scotland through introduction of a new waterway connecting Grangemouth to the wider canal network, alongside new cycle and footpaths - but it is two 30m high Andy Scott designed horse sculptures which are most likely to turn heads.
Described by Falkirk Council leader Craig Martin as “unique and inspirational” they are intended to lure visitors to the site both locally and nationally.
The Helix is being brought forward by a partnership comprising Falkirk Council, British Waterways and the Central Scotland Forest Trust. Together with the support of the Big Lottery Fund who are stumping up £25m.
Phase one of the project is pencilled in for completion by summer 2013.
