The English Channel will be connected to the River Thames for the first time through a strategy launched by the Association of Inland Navigation Authorities (AINA). This would be achieved through the full restoration of the Wey and Arun Canal and one of the eleven major waterway projects identified in AINA. AINA represents Britain's navigation authorities and provides single voice on waterway management issues. The 'missing links' on the canal and river network were identified. Key restoration and schemes can enhance the potential of the nation's waterways to deliver substantial economic, environmental and social benefits to rural and urban communities.
