Due to insufficient water supplies on the Falkirk Flight and the surrounding feeder streams, the Forth & Clyde canal is closed for navigation from Lock 16 to the Kelpies. 

The canal is open to navigation from the Falkirk Wheel heading West towards Glasgow and Bowling. 

A section of the Forth and Clyde Canal towpath at Lock 9, Falkirk, will also be closed off following the appearance of a sink hole. 

Boat movements will also be temporarily stopped through Lock 9 as repair works are carried out. The area has been fenced off and localised diversions will be in place until Tuesday 9th July to allow safe contractor working. 

We appreciate your patience as we carry out the repair and apologise for any inconvenience during this time.
