Bridgeness Biodoversity Project

Green Infrastructure habitat improvements; linking important habitats, and allowing the movement and mixing of wildlife, throughout the town of Bo’ness and beyond. Works undertaken as part of Buglife Scotland's 'Pollinator Way' project

Apr 16 2020

Bridgeness Biodiversity is a partnership project, located in the busy town of Bo’ness, between Buglife (the Invertebrate Conservation Charity) and Falkirk Council. This project aimed to manage two sites within the town: a brownfield site known locally as Bridgeness Ship Breakers and an existing wildflower meadow known as Grangepans Meadow. The John Muir Way, a 134 mile coast to coast trail across central Scotland, passes through both sites and regular users and visitors to the area have had their visits enhanced through the addition of colour and life to the area. Both sites now act as an important green corridor that functionally links important habitat and allows the movement and mixing of wildlife throughout Bo’ness and beyond.
