The modern Harborne Lane Bridge was constructed with navigation clearances and a channel in anticipation of restoration of the Lapal Canal. The recent excavations have created around 100m of channel this side of the bridge, ready to be linked through the bridge.
Around 300m of channel will be created through the building site at the other side of the bridge to link to the Worcester & Birmingham Canal at Selly Oak Junction. It’s hoped that boats will be able to cruise here within a few years.
The next photos (towards Selly Oak) were taken from this bridge.
