Redecking of pontoons and jetties across Forth & Clyde and Union Canals

Works to replace the decking on pontoons and jetties across the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals will get underway in 2019.

The lifespan of the decking on some of the pontoons and jetties across the Forth and Clyde and Union Canal network as been identified as a hazard due to the slippery nature of the timer and potential breakage due to age.

Over the next few years, the Scottish Canals Maintenance Team will undertake to replace the current decking with GRP mesh decking which is non-slip and has an expected lifespan of >50 years.

This page will be updated as works progress.
