To date, 11 locks and long stretches of the Neath Canal – including the reconstructed Ynysbwllog Aqueduct over the River Neath – have been returned to navigation by the Neath & Tennant Canals Trust, in conjunction with the canal owner and the local authority.

Against a background of long-standing aspiration to connect the two canals with the Swansea Canal via the SA1 Development of the Prince of Wales Dock and the River Tawe, a Swansea Bay Inland Waterway Partnership has been formed to promote the initiative.

It is hoped to restore the Aberdulais Aqueduct, a Grade II-listed structure, in time for the bicentenary of its construction in 2024.
