Better Towpaths for Everyone – Grand Union Canal Quietway (Paddington to West Drayton)
Closes 30 Nov 2016
Opened 24 Oct 2016
London’s towpaths are more popular and are being enjoyed by more people, more often than ever before. In 2015 there were more than 68 million visits to London’s towpaths. To help meet this demand, Canal & River Trust is transforming over 16 miles of towpath between Paddington and West Drayton with work beginning at the end of 2016.
Supported by Transport for London’s Quietways programme, and building on previous improvements in Greenford and Southall, we will be providing:
- better quality surfaces
- wider paths
- improved access points
- new signs
This project will bring huge benefits to everyone visiting and enjoying West London canals. Some of the work (such as trimming hedges) has started in preparation for the improvements coming over the next two years.
For more infomation about towpath improvements please see the video below. There are some useful documents to read via the links at the bottom of this page. Please also do try and make it along to one of our events too!
The main part of this survey will take you approximately 5 minutes to complete, but if you have a little more time you can also comment on more specific project details if you wish to.
