Scottish Canals is working with SUSTRANS (Places for Everyone) and Glasgow City Council to create a strategic pedestrian and cycle link between Glasgow City Centre via the Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area and the Sighthill, Port Dundas and wider North Glasgow area.

This regeneration project will provide a much improved access and cycle connection with the road and footpath improvements scheme currently under construction on North Canal Bank Street by Glasgow City Council. This will further establish North Canal Bank St and the Canal towpaths as popular walking/cycling routes.

Located adjacent to Mid Wharf Street/Payne Street and the Pinkston Watersports Complex, the works will transform the existing towpath and surrounding environment through provision of a new 3.5m wide smooth surface, seating areas, landscape and public realm improvements. The diagram below shows the area in which access will be improved.

The construction project is valued at £0.5m and is expected to commence in Spring 2021 and complete in Summer 2021.


Disruptions to the towpath and access will be advertised locally and updated on Scottish Canals website and social media channels.
