Riverside Regeneration Scheme

The canal in Loughborough

The canal in Loughborough

This project will upgrade this historic national waterway corridor which links the town centre and railway station making it a more attractive place to visit and use as a sustainable travel corridor. This project targets the towpath of the Grand Union Canal close to deprived communities and aims to:

  • Improve 2km of waterway through the town centre.
  • Resurface and make the towpath more accessible installing signage, lighting, wayfinding, and access points.
  • Increasing the number of mooring sites.
  • The improvements will contribute to a greater number of visitors on foot and by boat. It will also assist in making a physical link to the town's strong industrial heritage.
