Completed Projects

This is an exciting point in the regeneration of Glasgow's Canal, with change and renewal in full swing.

By 2020, the Glasgow Canal Regeneration Project aims to transform the canal into a fantastic waterside environment that will bring benefits to those living and working in Glasgow, providing special destinations for visitors to the city.

Already, major redevelopment projects are bringing transformation to the canal area. Urban renewal is taking place in the heart of the city and on the banks of the canal.

Each one of the projects listed here is an important part of the story. All of these projects have been completed, contributing to the revitalisation of communities along the canal. Many more projects are in progress or still at the ideas stage.
