Forth & Clyde Canal Link
As you can see from our
picture gallery, our new canal link and hub area are starting
to take shape.
So why are we creating
a new connection into the Forth & Clyde canal?
Currently the river's tidal patterns can make access to
the canal sea lock tricky.
The canal extension and tow path will provide a 1 km link from
the existing Forth & Clyde Canal down to a new sea lock on the
River Carron and on to the Firth of Forth.
Kelpies will be a towering attraction at the Canal Hub. This
major piece of public art will be installed during 2013 and is
expected to draw the crowds in a big way.
A new stretch of canal will provide better
access to the Forth & Clyde canal from the River Carron.
Sail up the Firth of Forth and into the River Carron. The new
link will provide easy access to the Forth & Clyde Canal. The
new Helix facilities will be ideal for sailors. The passage through
the canal leads to the outstanding sailing waters of Scotland's
Clyde Estuary and the Western Isles beyond.
