The Canal and North Gateway (CNG) project, with investment of £83.6m, aims to deliver site remediation, servicing, new bridges, roads access and public realm improvements in Sighthill, Port Dundas, Cowlairs and Speirs Lock.
The City Deal investment will fund the reconnection of the area with the City Centre and open up the north of the city, transforming the community and enabling growth in north Glasgow.
The North Glasgow Integrated Water Management System (NGIWMS) element of the project, being delivered in partnership with Scottish Canals, will create Glasgow's Smart Canal, to mitigate flood risk as well as enable regeneration.
The project will use sensors and predictive weather technology to provide early warning of wet weather before moving excess rainfall from residential and business areas into stretches of the canal where water levels have been lowered by as much as 10cm. This will create 55,000 cubic metres of extra capacity to transport surface water from North Glasgow to the River Kelvin during storms.
The benefits to the community are:
Consultation is underway and further community engagement will take place as the projects progress and develop.
