If you've happened to drive on the M9
near junction 6 recently, have you wondered what's going on below
Well, it's all to do with the Helix. Our contractor
Balfour Beatty have temporarily removed two of the lanes to
construct the M9 canal tunnel as part of our canal link development.
This 80m tunnel will allow the M9 and the adjacent pipe

Beatty are forming the area where the Kelpies will be sited, as
