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.
