The Falkirk Wheel has made a great contribution to the image of Scotland and is now an intrinsic part of the Lowland canals and a perfect symbol of their renaissance and the broad economic, social and environmental public value they together deliver.

The proposal to reopen the Forth & Clyde and Union Canal first became a real possibility in the early 1990s but the question mark was how to join the two to create the Millennium Link – a canal network enabling travel from Edinburgh to Glasgow, while regenerating the communities along the waterways.

Dr Hargreaves added: “When planning the Millennium Link, we wanted an extraordinary design which could become an icon affirming that the 18th century canal system is back and have an important role to play in travel in the 21st century.
