Glasgow’s Canal Corridor is a place for the urban pioneer to innovate and experiment. Europe’s first ever award winning ‘smart canal’ scheme has been constructed using the 250-year-old Canal and 21st century technology to mitigate flood.
This pioneering digital surface water drainage system is unlocking 110 hectares identified for investment, regeneration and development for 3000 new eco-homes. Predictive meteorological technology provides advanced warning of heavy rainfall, sensor technology will then trigger a lowering of the water level to create the necessary capacity for surface water run-off.
