Work has started on a project to resurface a half-mile stretch of towpath along the Grand Union Canal in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire.
We're working in partnership with Three Rivers District Council and Hertfordshire County Council, to resurface and widen sections the worn out towpath from Water Lane towards Hemel Hempstead.
This phase of works is costing £190,000 and once finished, the newly improved all-weather surface towpath will be suitable for wheelchair users and parents with buggies visiting the canal.
The work is expected to be completed by the end of May with the towpath closed for the duration of the works with diversion routes in place.
James Clifton, from the Canal & River Trust, said: “With generous support from these local authorities and Watford Borough Council, we have already improved over five miles of towpath between Kings Langley and Croxley Green so, once finished, these improvements will mean that people visiting the waterways can enjoy a puddle and pot hole free walk or cycle from Water Lane almost to Red Lion Lane."
