Winchburgh Marina reaches high-water mark

Work to deliver a new marina at Winchburgh, West Lothian, has taken a significant step forward with a controlled flood of approximately 5,000 cubic metres of water into the canal.

Led by Winchburgh Developments, Scottish Canals, I&H Brown and SWECO the work clears the way for further landscaping, pontoons, moorings and other facilities to be built.

When complete the inland marina will be the first to open on the Union Canal since 2014, providing berths for up to 20 leisure and commercial vessels at the heart of a new town centre.

Alastair Lewis, Technical Director, SWECO said: “Winchburgh is one of the most significant regeneration and housing growth projects in Scotland, set to deliver thousands of new homes, new schools, an 85-acre park and new employment space. The marina sits at the heart of the development, creating additional connectivity and a focal point for leisure and recreation, with an increasing focus on sustainable infrastructure."

Once complete a further 29 moorings will be added along the canal for people who wish to live on water.
