The two 30-metre high Kelpies, the name for a mythical Scottish water horse, are being created by sculptor Andy Scott as part of the Helix Project in Scotland.
As part of the £43m project Balfour Beatty is building new culverts to extend the Forth and Clyde canal under the M9 motorway and building a new sea lock.
This new Kelpie lock will link directly into the existing Carron mooring basin. One of the Kelpies will move to displace the water required to operate the canal lock
Atkins designed the steelwork for the 100m Kelpies created by Sculptor Andy Scott
The canal system was first brought back to the world’s attention with construction of the Falkirk Wheel lift, which ranks as one of the great UK engineering projects of the last decade.
