Our schedule of projected maintenance works is outlined below. This planned investment in our canals is essential to safeguard them for future generations.
Canal and towpath disruptions will only happen on specific dates/times within the overall project; we communicate this via our news page and social media channels when dates are known. Further information on each project will be available by clicking the project name or via the what we are doing page.
Dates are subject to change. The level and detail of disruption will be communicated via the news page and Scottish Canals social media channels as and when known.
Further projects may be added to this list when confirmed. The works schedule will be updated on a regular basis.
