THE BRITISH Waterways Board is discussing with potential users the regeneration of commercial traffic on the Caledonian Canal, replacing some road haulage activity.
John Anderson, project development officer, is looking meantime at Corpack Harbour at the south end of the canal near Fort William and is discussing "fairly substantial tonnages" with potential users.
It is understood that door-todoor prices are involved with use of haulage contractors.
Trading concerns in the area see potential use as limited and only if the BWB can undercut existing road freight hauliers.
