IWA South Wales Branch Introduces the Swansea Bay Integrated Waterway (SBIW) / Dyfrffordd Mewndirol Bae Abertawe

IWA Logo Following consultation with interested parties, the South Wales Branch of The Inland Waterways Association has announced the name of the proposed integrated waterway linking the Swansea Canal to the Neath and Tennant Canals via a new route through Swansea Vale, the River Tawe and the Docks: The Swansea Bay Integrated Waterway.

On completion, the waterway will provide a 37-mile navigation from close to the Brecon Beacons National Park, via the Tawe and Neath valleys, through some of the most important historic South Wales industrial areas to the South Wales coast at Swansea and Neath. This amenity will benefit local communities providing employment through attracting visiting boats and tourists and providing excellent recreational facilities.

The aim of this proposal is to:
• restore the Swansea canal above Clydach
• build a new cut from the Swansea Canal into the River Tawe
• build a new cut from the River Tawe into Kings Dock
• reinstate the link between the Tennant Canal and Kings Dock
• restore the Aberdulais aqueduct
