Canal construction

Canal construction

About this memory

Over 2.5 km of canal was re-dug through Wester Hailes along with the realigning of roads and the construction of new bridges. After the Falkirk Wheel, the work carried out in Wester Hailes was the most complex and challenging in restoring the canal link.
