Red Dragon

On 5 July 2015, in its 125th year, the Forth Bridge was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO becoming the sixth such site in Scotland to be awarded the status. The United Nations’ Cultural Committee announced the decision after considering its nomination for over a year. There are more than 1000 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in over 160 countries which are given to locations of 'outstanding universal value' to protect them for future generations to enjoy. Designed by Sir John Fowler and Sir Benjamin Baker, the Forth Bridge was the longest single cantilever bridge in the world at the time of completion. Opened by the Prince of Wales on 4 March 1890 after eight years of construction, the bridge was a ground-breaking piece of engineering involving roughly 4500 workers at its peak. Owned and operated by Network Rail, today the Forth Bridge carries around 200 trains per day and is considered one of the industrial wonders of the world. 23.06.2015
