BRAKES GO ON WHEEL PLANS

Canal Boat - - News -

Pro­pos­als which would have seen one of the two cais­sons of the Falkirk Wheel fit­ted with a static pon­toon for pas­sen­gers (and which led to con­cerns by the In­land Wa­ter­ways As­so­ci­a­tion and oth­ers that this would se­ri­ously limit its ca­pac­ity for boats) have been put on hold. Scot­tish Canals has said that the ‘Ro­tate’ project will not pro­ceed ‘for the next few years’ while re­sources are con­cen­trated on main­tain­ing the boat lift. SC says Ro­tate is still part of its plans, but that it is “com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing that our cus­tomers are in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment of this project once we are in a po­si­tion to progress”.
