REVOLUTIONARY MOVE: Two giant gondolas weighing 80t each were due to be lifted into place on the Falkirk Wheel today, the final stage in the erection of the world's first rotating boat lift. Earlier in the week the 50t axle and two 300t arm sections had been raised into position by a 1,000t crane. Main jv contractor Morrison Bachy Soletanche is due to complete the £12M project next spring. Once open the Wheel will link the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals, recreating a waterways link between Edinburgh and Glasgow. The link was broken more than 60 years ago when the original connecting flight of 11 locks fell into disuse.
