Brighton’s Burn Aqueduct

Defects of the Brighton's Burn Aqueduct were addressed in 2019/2020.

A routine inspection of the Brighton’s Burn Aqueduct on the Union Canal identified a number of defects which were addressed in order to help manage the ongoing deterioration of the asset.

The programme of works ensure the integrity of the aqueduct was maintained – aiding in the prevention of flooding and water level management for the Union Canal.

The programme of works undertaken included the improvement and stabilisation of the structure walls, management of the vegetation including removal and repair of damage created, and the repointing and removal of silt from the barrel of aqueduct.
