Improvement Works to Grand Union Canal Towpath
Canal & River Trust is continuing their planned programme of towpath and access improvements on the Grand Union Canal to bring better towpaths to West London.
These improvements are part of Canal & River Trust’s Grand Union Canal Cycleway (Quietway) project, which is transforming over 16 miles of towpath between Paddington and West Drayton into safer, more accessible spaces, in partnership with Transport for London and the London Boroughs of Hillingdon, Ealing and Brent.
The improvements will bring huge benefits to everyone visiting and enjoying West London’s canals. Improvements are already complete west of Ladbroke Grove, between Alperton and Southall, and between Stockley Park and Yiewsley.
From 12th July the team will complete improvement works between Hayes and Stockley Park:
- The final surface of natural stone chips will be added to the towpath between Printing House Lane in Hayes and Old Stockley Road Bridge near Stockley Park for approximately one week. This is the towpath directly adjacent to Stockley Park. The towpath was widened at the end of last year replacing the previous rough gravel surfaces of varying widths. During the improvements, the towpath and access points will need to be closed with diversions in place and moorings may be temporarily disrupted for short periods. Details of the closure will be posted shortly on the notifications page.
