People are being asked to give their views on proposed improvements to Huddersfield Narrow Canal towpath in a consultation that runs until 12 March 2017.
The plans are to improve the Canal towpath between Longroyd Lane in Huddersfield and Low Westwood Lane, opposite Titanic Mills.
It’s a 4.6km stretch and the plans include:
- resurfacing – to create a year-round usable surface
- widening to allow people to pass each other more comfortably
- relaying and re-pointing the heritage cobbles around locks and bridges to make the towpath more accessible
- improved signage
The planned improvements are part of the Canals Project, a programme of work being delivered across West Yorkshire by CityConnect, in partnership with Canal and River Trust.
