Wolverhampton to Birmingham towpath completed

A two-year, £4.2m project to upgrade the 11 miles of towpath between Birmingham and Wolverhampton was completed in July.

The entire Main Line between the two city centres is now up to full cycling standard, "level, and pothole- and traffic-free" says the Canal & River Trust. While CRT did the work, funding came from local authority and local enterprise partnerships, though a programme called Managing Short Trips 2.

Another 12 miles has already been upgraded on the Wyrley & Essington and the Tame Valley Canals.
