Union Canal, West of Linlithgow - Hazard

Sat 10 November 2018
Union Canal - Woodcockdale 2012-11-10

Scottish Canals are working on the canal banks to the west of Linlithgow and as a result they have installed stop gates across the canal to then de-water the section of canal between Woodcockdale (A706) to Preston Road, Linlithgow.

About 20 metres from these gates an advanced warning line has been strung across that canal at head / neck height.
The bridge at Woodcockdale has no street lighting and as a result is in total darkness at night.

This stretch of canal is used heavily by marathon and other paddlers in the evenings - please be aware of these obstructions.
