Long Description:
"This tunnel was built as part of the Millennium Link project to carry the Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal (NS87NE 31.00: LIN 18) beneath the Antonine Wall (NS87NE 57.01), the Edinburgh-Glasgow (main) railway line, and Bonnyhill Road. It thus forms the southern approach to the Falkirk Wheel (NS88SE 198).
The tunnel is short, straight and of circular section. The sides have been formed by sprayed concrete, and both entrances are of simple form. There is a railed footpath on the E side of the waterway."
