Scottish Canals’ Asset Management Strategy sets out our plans for managing our investment between 2018 and 2030, directing our limited resources to assets that pose the biggest safety risk to the public and the projects that offer the greatest public value.
What We Care For
Scottish Canals is responsible to the Scottish Government for the management and development of five Scottish canals - 140 miles of inland waterways - as well as the surrounding estates, The Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies river navigation rights and 14 feeders.
Asset Management Strategy 2018-30
Scottish Canals’ Asset Management Strategy sets out how the organisation will manage, care for, and prioritise works between 2018 and 2030.
How Do We Decide?
We need to prioritise the projects that pose the biggest safety risk to the public, customers and staff, and the projects that offer the greatest public value.
Our ongoing stoppage programme outlines the canal works taking place in 2020/21. Please note dates included in this page are subject to change.
What We Are Doing
We have been carrying out investigations on our assets across the canal network, and have identified the following projects as high priority for 2018/19 against our £11 million Grant In Aid for this financial year.
