Glasgow's Smart Canal Construction Complete

Glasgow's Smart Canal Construction Complete

Construction of North Glasgow Integrated Water Management System - Glasgow's Smart Canal - which uses the 250-year-old Forth & Clyde Canal and smart technology to reduce flood risk and the impacts of climate change, and unlock 110 hectares across the north of the city for investment, regeneration and development, is now complete.

The project is now in the formal commissioning and testing phase as it becomes operational and available should a significant storm event impact the north of Glasgow.

An animation to explain how the system will work is available here -
