Forth Bridge World Heritage consultation launched
May 20 2013
For 12 weeks individuals and interested parties will have the chance to have their say on the potential social, economic and cultural benefits a listing may bring.
It is hoped this could boost tourism and education in the area following the UK government’s decision that the 19th century structure should top a tentative list which will be put to UNESCO for consideration early next year.
Fiona Hyslop, cabinet secretary for culture and external affairs said: “The Forth Bridge is an iconic and enduring symbol of Scotland’s Victorian engineering ingenuity at its very best. It truly is deserving of World Heritage Site status and as a new industrial heritage site would join our five existing Scottish World Heritage sites in achieving this international recognition.”
