The Forth Bridge
World Heritage Consultation
The Forth Bridges Forum is helping to prepare the nomination of the Forth Bridge for inclusion in the World Heritage List. The work will draw on information gathered from the consultation which ended on Sunday 11th August 2013. The nomination is due to be submitted to UNESCO early in 2014. It will then be scrutinised and evaluated by UNESCO over an 18-month period. A decision by UNESCO on whether to inscribe the Forth Bridge as a World Heritage Site is expected in 2015. You can find background on the Forth Bridge and links to the consultation on this site.
The Forth Bridge is a Scottish icon that is recognised the world over.
