The social history of Wester Hailes

Bridging the Gap

Weighing 15 tons and spanning 3o metres, this footbridge was put in place in February 2000, linking Westburn to the Calders.  It came all the way from South Wales and was brought to the site with a police escort.  It needed a 200 ton crane to place it on its mounts!

And do you recognise this bridge?!
