Bluebells on the Move

Thursday, January 26, 2012
We were delighted to receive a donation from FCBC of £2,000. This donation was related to Scotland’s largest infrastructure project and the need to relocate 70,000 bluebell bulbs.

Site clearance works at Admiralty House near North Queensferry for the Forth Replacement Crossing mean the bulbs situated there will need to be removed and replanted at Castlandhill nearby.

This operation will see 200 tonnes of topsoil containing the bluebell bulbs removed and spread in a thick layer at Castlandhill to ensure the bulbs are at the appropriate depth to take root in their new home.

FCCT have advised FCBC, the contractors designing and building the new bridge, on the removal of the bulbs.

Commenting, Carlo Germani, FCBC Project Director, said of FCBC’s commitment to the highest environmental construction standards: “Care for the environment, including flora and wildlife, is a central pillar of our approach to the construction of the new Forth bridge.
FCBC’s Environmental Management Plan was an important element of the contract we signed with Transport Scotland. We are determined to carry out our environmental responsibilities fully and, indeed, to exceed them wherever possible. We are grateful to FCCT for their help with the important task of safely relocating these bluebell bulbs.”
Amanda McFarlane, our Chief Executive, said: “The Trust is delighted to accept the donation of £2000 from FCBC. And, we have welcomed the opportunity to advise on the relocation of the bluebell bulbs for their best possible long-term outcome.

“The Trust manages a number of sites across Fife, including The Fife Coastal Path. In 2011, the Trust launched an extension to the Path which now runs from North Queensferry to Kincardine Bridge – I’m sure walkers on the Path will watch with interest the progress being made to the new crossing which, when complete, will join the Forth’s other famous landmarks.”
